Let them Lead the Way – Panel Session

Our mutual love of crime writing had to start somewhere, and I’m sure if we all cast our minds back we will remember fondly delving into the world of The Three Investigators, The Famous Five or The Secret Seven, but who is inspiring the same love of mystery in the young of today? We’ve got three of the best children’s and YA crime fiction authors ready to help answer that question. Sharna Jackson, Nicki Thornton and Sarah Todd Taylor are being joined by fellow crime author and founder of the ‘Parenting Without Tears’ website Anne Coates to discuss the pros & cons of writing for a younger audience, the unique skills needed to appeal to young adults and what it feels like to be inspiring a whole new generation of mystery lovers.
