    Panel: Thrillers with Simon Kernick, Tom Wood, Mason Cross and GJ Brown

    The theme of this event is thrillers, and we’re in good hands as these four get together to discuss their heart stopping writing and explosive plotlines.

    Simon Kernick’s race-against-time novels and novellas have seen him top the crime charts. Mason Cross released The Samaritan in July, the second instalment of the popular series featuring investigator Carter Blake. G.J. Brown’s book Meltdown  is the latest gripping page-turner from this Glasgow author. Tom Wood’s new novel The Darkest Day has seen him described as “the new master of the dark, intricately plotted chase thriller.”

    Expect a lively discussion about how to write fast-paced plots that grab readers and don’t let go until the very end.
