June 05 at 4pm
Fact and fantasy intertwine in the works of Murdoch Mysteries creator Maureen Jennings, and of Scottish husband-and-wife duo Chris Brookmyre and Marisa Haetzman (known by the pen-name Ambrose Parry). The historical fiction writers will come together to share how they meld mystery with history and apply research in the crafting of their tales. The event will dive into Except the Dying by Maureen Jennings (set in the cold Toronto winter of 1895), and A Corruption of Blood by Ambrose Parry (set in Edinburgh in the 1840s).
