I’m delighted to be taking part in RebusFest, a weekend of events celebrating 30 years of yer man. I’m not at the whisky masterclass, sadly, but I am conducting a crime writing workshop at the National Museum of Scotland all day on Sat 1st July. I GUARANTEE that all participants will write as well as Ian by the end of the day, and will have long and successful careers in crime writing. Absolutely guarantee it. All the details are here.
