Libraries have always been very important to me, and I think they're particularly vital in communities where there isn't much else available.

Edlington, near Doncaster, is a former coal mining area which is said to be one of the most deprived areas in England.

However, it now has a very nice new library located in the Martinwells Centre, a community facility which also includes doctors' surgeries, a dentist's, a pharmacy and a cafe. 

I'll be there this Wednesday (25th November, 2pm) to talk to readers about the Cooper and Fry series, with copies of the books on sale. Tickets are just £2, refreshments included. 

To be sure of a place, phone Edlington Library on 01302 736470, or just turn up on the day.

Don't miss 'The Line-Up' - an evening of crime fiction coming up at Waterstones Nottingham on Friday 6th November.

Steven's explosive and gripping self-published debut in 2008, 'The Reaper', dropped a bomb on the crime scene and led to a string of thrillers starring the troubled DI Damen Brook. He presents Eexhibit A: his latest novel 'A Killing Moon'.

Suspect number two: Glenis Wilson 

Already a celebrated author of literary fiction Glenis has turned her talented hand to crime, 'Dead Certainty' was released earlier this year to widespread acclaim. She will bring Exhibit B: her second crime novel set in the hidden underbelly of the world of horse racing, 'Dead On Course'.
