The Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival (Harrogate) is my ‘come hell or high water’ weekend away, whatever it takes for me to get there I will be there.
This year it was extra special for me.
My partner of the last five and a half years chose the festival as a venue to propose, at the end of one of the panels being moderated by friend, and this years programming chair, Steve Mosby.
Overwhelmed doesn’t cover it.
Suffice is to say I don’t think there’ll ever be another crime fiction panel quite like this one for me. We even managed get a few mentions here and there, and twice over here too….
