Author of the month for October - Sheila Quigley

Not so many writers to choose from this month, as we come to Q in our alphabetical selection of author of the month, but our choice is  thriller writer Sheila Quigley

Sheila has lived on the Homelands Estate (at present with her son and two dogs) at Houghton-le-Spring near Sunderland for 30 years, opposite a field which became the fictional location of the council housing estate in her Seahills books.

A visit to the author's website revealed that Sheila will lead her annual murder tour 'Homicide in Houghton' on Saturday 15th October 2011. The tour begins and ends at the Houghton Library at 2pm, where, after the walk, there will be refreshments and a sneak preview of Sheila's next book Nowhere Man.

A bit far off for us to attend I fear, but we love the idea and will be pondering how we could do something similar in Stromness? Suggestions please!
