Twisted sex, female victims and serial killers............


according to American author Tess Gerritsen speaking at the Bloomin Book Festival at Southport Flower show on Sunday these are the components that her readers want! Apparently most US readers of detection fiction are women and they want to identify with the victim-she had no explanation for twisted sex or the fascination with  serial killing.
Ms Gerritsen is on a UK Tour including a visit to the Edinburgh Festival. The Sunday Independent featured her last week and published her schedule but managed to exclude details of her trip to Southport. Not withstanding the Indy's indifference to the event it was well attended and certainly the women sat next to me thought it was the highlight of the Show. Mind you even Ms Gerritsen's own website doesn't mention the Southport Flower Show

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
