About Me:
Although I enjoy reading a variety of crime fiction, I have been particularly interested in translated novels, when not reading French. I am currently working on a PhD at Warwick University on Fred Vargas, but also reading other contemporary French women crime writers. I am also responsible for the British part of the website. I am always looking for articles on politically and socially engaged British crime fiction - so do get in touch if you feel inspired to contribute a review or critique.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
Fred Vargas and other French writers - Dominique Manotti, Claude Amoz. Steig Larsson, Arnuldur Indridason, and other Nordic writers.
Translated European crime fiction.

Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival - Harrogate 19-22 July 2007

Next week I will be attending this festival for the first time. It looks exciting with lots of people to listen to and activities in the bar etc. Not sure how easy it will be to meet like-minded people so if anyone else on crimespace is going, please let me know. As a cheapskate (I am after all freelance and paying for myself) I am staying with a friend in Harrogate but will hang around the bar and hopefully encounter crime afficionados. more later...

thanks so much Sue.
I think unfortunately so many authors are only trying to get where the market forces leads them or perhaps they are seeking to produce a commercially loveable work.
I wish it weren't so.
I've seen my w.i.p. change--alter a little before my eyes. not that I in anyway can even aspire to the heights of other more capable authors!
But in a small way, I'm proud of my very minor sea change--I'm just beginning my final draft now and will see where it goes--
as for you, sue! I so admire your work for better, more socially committed fiction--raising awareness and so on. wow. carry on!
yes, do stop by when you have time.
I know what you mean about this site--it's so easy for me to get distracted and run amok! My favorite thing on here is the Forum, but it can get very time consuming!
anyway, thanks for your note and take care.
all the best!

Hi Sue,

Sue-Greetings: Just to let you know that my New Orleans noir mystery, The
Beatitudes, has received 5 starred reviews! I am donating all royalties to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation to help rebuild the public libraries. I have posted Chapter I on my blog Please read and if you like it, help rebuild a library for NOLA. Thank you Lyn LeJeune

Okay, that does it...I'm planning Harrogate for next year. I just signed with an agent last week who is based in Ireland. Not for The Beatitudes and The Beatitudes Network, but for a thriller about poker, specicially Texas Hold'em. It was fun to write and I visited the casinos along the Gulf Coast and learned how to play!

Should you decide to write your PhD on Fred Vargas, I'll get you in touch with her. She is a good friend of mine. I also know Daeninckx fairly well and have his email address. Don't hesitate t stay in touch.

Oh please, how was Harrogate? My dream is to go and take my book. My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my page here on crimespace.

Sue - it was lovely to see you...if very briefly. I looked for you again over the weekend but couldn't see you in all the mass of faces! In answer to your question about foreign conventions the panels are quite similar in that some are good, some are bad. The best ones for me are where the moderator takes a back seat and where they vary the questions and do not just go straight down the line asking the same question to each panelist one after the other. Most of the other conventions I have been to tend to have 2 or 3 tracks going, so there are a couple of panel choices each session. This means that the sessions are not so full and a bit more intimate.
