I would read accounts of so-called battles I had been in, and they had no relation whatever to what had happened. So I began to perceive that anything written was fiction to various degrees. The whole subject – the difference between actuality and representation – was an interesting one. And that's what brought me to literature in the first place.

Queens of Crime Conference 12-13 June 2014

Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 11:02am
Senate House, University of London

Keynote Speakers:
Val McDermid
Dr Lee Horsley

Since the 1920s, women have been among the most prolific and influential authors of crime fiction. Some of the best-known heroes and anti-heroes of fiction are also women. From pioneers in the genre, such as Anna Katherine Green and the Baroness Orczy, through Golden Age queens of crime, like Agatha Christie (for whom the term was invented), Dorothy L. Sayers and Margery Allingham, to the innovators of the present day, including Sara Peretsky, Val McDermid, and Kate Atkinson, the female of the species has been more deadly than the male.
