CRIME writer Ann Cleeves of Whitley Bay will be talking about her work on Wednesday at Ponteland Library.
She won the Duncan Lawrie Gold Dagger (the biggest prize for crime writing in the world) in 2006 for Raven Black, the first in her popular Shetland Quartet novels.
Ann is also well known for her crime books featuring Inspector Vera Stanhope, which are shortly to feature in an ITV series called Vera.
The latest Vera Stanhope novel Silent Voices is set in Tynedale and will be published in the spring.
