Harrogate Festival reports
Readers of Detectives Beyond Borders might especially like It's a Crime!'s report on a panel about Crime in the City. There, David Hewson, author of the Nic Costa novels, set in Rome, reveals that, during a gray childhood in Bridlington (Yorkshire, I presume!), "I didn't see the colour yellow until seven years old," that he loved the Mediterranean, and that he considers himself better at writing about what he doesn't know than what he does.
Hewson, Paul Johnston, Michelle Spring and panel chair Paul Blezard engage in a deep and wide-ranging discussion of what authors think about when they create settings. I recommend it highly.
