#AuthorFeature – Val McDermid @valmcdermid – #WomensHistoryMonth 07/03/2017

Welcome to DAY TWO of five features this week where I talk about just some of the women that I personally feel have helped shaped not only the literary world, but also my tastes as a reader. These are not going to be lengthy essay types – they tend to drivel on. We want our features to be short and sweet!

I could not do this week without mentioning one of my favourite female authors; Val McDermid.

McDermid was a journalist after leaving university before penning her first novel in the Lindsay Gordon series; REPORT FOR MURDER

Since then, McDermid has gone on to release many standalone books, as well as books in four separate series; Lindsay Gordon, Inspector Karen Pirie, Kate Brannigan and my personal favourite; Tony Hill & Carol Jordan.
