8 Crime Writers? Yes, Count ’em …
Caroline Dunford is the author of the Euphemia Martins Historical Mysteries.
After time spent as a journalist and a psychotherapist, I became a full-time author and playwright in 2002.
How we interact as human beings has been a life-long fascination for me, and even led me to do a second degree in psychology.

Chris Longmuir is the author of the Dundee Crime Series and the Kirsty Campbell Mysteries.
Dundee and crime are the mix I use to create stories about the dark side of life. There are no angels in my novels which illustrate the lives of drug users, pushers, gangsters, stalkers, and the people who live in their midst.
The police characters are no different, they have their own demons to deal with.

Mac Logan is the author of The Angels’ Share series.
Short of spending a lifetime in jail, a vengeance trail of murder and mayhem has few acceptable alternatives. Writing is one of them.
My thrillers offer a sense of recourse against corrupt people and cadres who screw us and steal our money.

Marsali Taylor is the author of six traditional crime novels starring her Shetland sailing heroine Cass Lynch.
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t write! My mother still has a little notebook of ‘stories’ I wrote when I was six, mostly accounts of something that happened in our holidays, with a little picture beside each. At University, I moved on to historical romance, and I wrote two historical novels before returning to mystery fiction.

Having read all the books in the local library by the age of ten, she entered into a spirited discussion with a librarian as to why she should be provided with an adult library card.
