Irish author Liz Nugent explores Celtic and criminal connections with Scottish writer Denise Mina this Sunday as part of the Bloody Scotland festival. It takes place in Stirling from 8-10 September.
Also among the Irish attendees, Steve Cavanagh will be in a panel discussion about what it's like being a lawyer by day and crime writer by night, and Stuart Neville will talk about his "debut" under the Haylen Beck pen name.
Other festival highlights include Lynda LaPlante, Val McDermid, Ian Rankin on 30 years of Rebus, and author and Bloody Scotland co-founder Alex Gray being grilled by Police Scotland’s Deputy Chief Constable Iain Livingstone and Detective Superintendant Duncan Sloan.
