One of the nation's most successful crime-writers is interviewed on stage at Perth Theatre by local-born radio presenter and comedian, Fred MacAulay. MacAulay, renowned for his sense of humour, will be the perfect host to chat to Val about her career which has saw the Kirkcaldy author sell over ten million copies worldwide and have her work translated into 30 different languages.
Val has created many notable characters such as journalist, Lindsay Gordon; the private investigator, Kate Brannigan; and psychologist, Tony Hill.
Her books include three main series: Lindsay Gordon, Kate Brannigan, and, beginning in 1995, the Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series, the first entry in which, The Mermaids Singing, won the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger for Best Crime Novel of the Year. The Hill and Jordan series was adapted for the highly successful television drama; Wire in the Blood, starring Robson Green.
