Great Crime Sleuths

Honoured and excited to see that Geraldine Steel has been selected by LoveReading as one of the Great Crime Sleuths, along with Tess Gerritsen, Ann Cleeves and Elly Griffiths. What an accolade!
Here's what Maxim Jakubowski wrote about Geraldine:
"A truly believable female sleuth with a sad knack for coming across cases where the bodies just sort of accumulate in her passage, Geraldine Steel is a classic British cop, part of a tight knit murder team, in which she proves to be a vital cog. Adopted at birth and still marked by the fact, and prone to flirting with her pathologist, Geraldine proves great fun and a character who grows on the reader with every successive title in the series."

And thank you to my loyal fan Gordon who sent me this photo he took at  my signing at Waterstones in Guildford today, and to all the local readers who bought my books. I hope you enjoy them!

My workshop at Get Writing 2012 has already sold out. Thank  you to all the writers who rushed to sign up for it. I look forward to meeting you in February. If you didn't sign up in time, there are plenty of other workshops going on so check them out and I'll see you there! Please come and say hello.
