Third night in a row at the Mitchell Library for what is shaping up to be the best #AyeWrite I’ve attended yet! This time I was here to see Steph Broadribb, SJI Holliday and Russel D McLean in #ThreeSlicesOfCrime bringing together two of the #Sultry #SliceGirls, Steph and Susie and host of #NoirAtTheBar, Russel. The panel was chaired by the brilliant Gordon Brown.
The hour hurtled by with readings from Steph, Susie and Russell…seriously if you see Susie ask her about what YouTube video she watched on repeat to research the rabbit skinning scene in #WillowWalk – she even made herself feel violently sick reading it out! Steph got Gordon all hot and bothered with her reading from #DeepDownDead and her whisperings of panties and bras! And well Russel, seriously we were all left wondering just what goes through that man’s head at times when we found out some of his secrets behind #EdsDead – let’s just say never hide in Russel’s cupboards when he has access to a burning hot poker!
It was fascinating listening to Steph, Susie and Russel talk about their writing process, from planning to flying by the seat of your pants, the lengths people go to for book research – training as a Bounty Hunter and to how each of them arrived at the decision to become a writer. An hour is never enough for me to listen to this!
Gordon then asked for some audience participation in guessing what lines came from which author’s book and there was a few red faces on the panel and the audience when authors and publishers got it slightly wrong 😉 I’m naming no names! #WhatHappensInTheMitchellStaysInTheMitchell
And for anyone heading to Bloody Scotland later this year, then if Steph and Susie are making an appearance with the #SliceGirls then you’d be crazy to miss this show!
