Crime writer Nicola Upson will give a talk at St Neots Library on July 3.

The author, who was born in Suffolk and read English at Downing College, in Cambridge, has worked in theatre and as a freelance journalist and will talk about her writing career and her books.

Her debut novel, An Expert in Murder, was the first in a series of crime novels, whose main character is Josephine Tey. She is also the author of two non-fiction works, and the recipient of an Escalator Award from Arts Council England.

Upson lives with her partner in Cambridge and spends much of her time in Cornwall, which was the setting for her second novel, Angel with Two Faces. Two for Sorrow is the third book in the Josephine Tey series, and will be followed by Fear in the Sunlight.

The event at the library is free, but places are limited and must be booked in advance.

Refreshments will be served and donations to the Friends of St Neots Library are welcome.
