The Garnethill trilogy was followed by ten more novels, among which 'The End of the Wasp Season' and 'Gods and Beasts' won the Theakstons Old Peculiar Award, making her the first writer to win the prize in two consecutive years.

Her latest novel is 'The Long Drop', winner of both the Gordon Burn Prize and the McIlvanney Crime Novel of the Year 2017.

As well as writing novels, she has had three staged in Glasgow and Edinburgh, makes documentaries and films and writes for DC Comics.

A really big thank you to you and everyone at Bookmark for doing such a splendid job. I felt I was made truly welcome and everything was very well-arranged and proceeded so smoothly. I can only guess at the massive work done to make this possible. Well done! Please pass on my thanks to the other members of the great Bookmark team. I‘m pleased my event seemed to go well. A great venue and a lovely audience. Lin was a fantastic interviewer, too! I‘d be delighted to come back again any time. Also to take part in the schools programme, if possible.
