The CRA was set up in 2012 by members of the Crime Writers’ Association with the aim of bringing crime fiction fans a superb range of crime novels written by top authors, as well as providing informative and entertaining articles written by published crime authors. There's a great deal more on the CRA website including author events and a blog. Membership is free and includes a weekly newsletter as well as an edition of the CRA monthly magazine – Case Files.
March sees me entertaining audiences with tales of murder, mystery and mayhem and explaining how I write my crime novels. I'll be speaking about the inspiration behind my crime novels, how I research and plot them and I'll be telling the audience about the creation of my flawed and rugged detective, DI Andy Horton.

On the writing front I will be busy working on three novels, yes, three. I'll be revising DI Andy Horton 12, writing DI Andy Horton 13, and plotting out the novel in my brand new series of crime novels with a new series hero.
I'll also be planning for the publication in April of the latest in the DI Andy Horton series, Shroud of Evil which will be published in hardcover in the UK and Commonwealth.
