Fan of thriller/mystery? Love reading Linwood Barclay? We’d like to recommend the Panel: Linwood Barclay, Joy Fielding & Shari Lapena on October 26 at 7pm.
Anything can happen when two block-busting bestsellers put their heads together for an hour of solid author intrigue. Linwood Barclay interviews award-winning Scottish crime writer Ian Rankin. Hosted by Deborah Dundas.
Linwood Barclay, a New York Times bestselling author and with nearly twenty novels to his credit, spent three decades in newspapers before turning full time to writing thrillers. His books have been translated into more than two dozen languages, sold millions of copies and he counts Stephen King among his fans. Many of his books have been optioned for film and TV, a series has been made in France and he wrote the screenplay for the film based on his novel Never Saw it Coming.
Deborah Dundas became the Books Editor at the Toronto Star after reviewing books for the paper for more than 15 years. She has worked in the media for more than 25 years – including stints as a books editor, but also in business, lifestyle, and national and city politics. She's worked at CTV and TVO, both as an editor/producer and reporting, interviewing or producing shows on emerging artists, popular writers and literary powerhouses. She's also lived and worked in Northern Ireland. She feels that the books beat is the perfect marriage of her diverse experience and interests.
Born in the Kingdom of Fife in 1960, Ian Rankin graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1982 and spent three years writing novels when he was supposed to be working toward a PhD in Scottish Literature. His Rebus books have been translated into 36 languages and are bestsellers worldwide. Rankin received the Order of the British Empire for services to literature, opting to receive the prize in his home city of Edinburgh, where he lives with his partner and two sons.
