Road Nets Six of the Best at Crime Writing Festival

Six top authors and commentators from the literary world showed their support for The End of the Road at the 2022 Harrogate Crime Writing Festival.

Among the luminaries taking an interest were Ann Cleves, the brains behind TV favourites such as Vera and Shetland; star of The Fast Show, Broadchurch and Grantchester (and acclaimed novelist), Charlie Higson, debut writers and media personalities, Richard Coles and Rosemary Shrager; Channel 4’s Steph McGovern, host of Steph’s Packed Lunch and the legendary actor, novelist and screen writer, Lynda La Plante.

The annual gathering, known as “the Glastonbury” of the genre, attracts thousands of observers of “the dark arts” from all over the world, for four days with presentations on new releases, social trends, plot construction, police procedures and research techniques.

“The recognition for End of the Road is an achievement for a self-published novel as most of the books featured are from the big publishing houses”, explained author Martin Venning.

“It’s great to be in such good company”.
