We are four international crime fiction writers who have come together to blog as International Crime Writers’ Reality Check. Barbara Nadel has a series set in Istanbul, Colin Cotterill’s has a series set in Laos, Matt Beynon Rees has a set a series in the West Bank/Gaza, and Christopher G. Moore has set his series in Thailand.
We will be blogging about our lives, research, observations and writing from our region of the world. Reality check is our way of seeking out the facts and truths about the culture, language, and history of the places where we have set our series.
Our desire is to increase awareness of how writers living in other cultures go about writing fiction about the people, events and crimes.
We hope that you will join us as we weekly seek out new frontiers in writing crime fiction set in some of the more vibrant, interesting places in the world.
