Author announcement - ES Thomson

ES Thomson was the very first author we invited and we're really excited that she'll be joining us at this year's festival to discuss gothic Victorian crime writing and gory surgical procedures!

Elaine's first book in the Jem Flockhart series, 'Beloved Poison', was so well received that it was shortlisted for Scottish Crime Novel of the Year in 2016 alongside Val McDermid, Doug Johnstone, and Chris Brookmyre. Her next instalment, 'Dark Asylum', has just been released and people are already raving about it!
