Join bestselling authors Liz Nugent and Karen Perry for a fascinating conversation about crime writing in Ireland today. What is it like to write as a team, how do you get inside the head of a psychopath and where do the darkest, most disturbing ideas come from?
Liz Nugent’s debut novel Unravelling Oliver was an Irish Times bestseller and a Simon Mayo book club pick.  Her latest book, Lying in Wait was an Irish Times and Sunday Times bestseller as well as a Richard and Judy pick. Before publishing her first book she wrote for soap opera, radio drama, television plays, short stories and animation for children.
Karen Perry is the pen name of crime writing duo Paul Perry and Karen Gillece. Their latest novel, Girl Unknown, was published in paperback earlier this year and Ryan Tubridy described it as a “quality Irish thriller”. It  follows Only We Know and The Boy That Never Was which was selected for the Simon Mayo Radio 2 book club, all three were Sunday Times bestsellers. Their new novel Shoot the Crows will be published in August.
Join us for this dark and twisty discussion, followed by Q&A, as part of the Dead in Dún Laoghaire Crime Writing Festival.
