Midsummer Mystery

What a wonderful way to spend a day! A big room full of young mystery fans and their parents. Four other great mystery writers all giving talks and workshops - and in between - sitting chatting, having fun, eating cakes and comparing notes. A wonderful venue in the lovely seaside town of St Annes on Sea, organised by the amazing Storytellers. Inc bookshop. And, if that wasn't enough, a mystery-play written especially written for the day, with actors playing the parts, and the authors all joining in as the suspects.

We were even in the newspaper.



Thank you to the wonderful Katie and Carolyn Clapham at Storytellers.Inc for organising such a wonderful day of mystery, and to everyone who came along - it was great fun!

 If you like Adventure Island and are looking for some other mystery books to read, ones by the authors at this event would all be great ones to try - if you haven't done already. Here is a selection of their books. All are high recommended - why not rush off down to the book shop and add them to your summer reading pile!
