We’re delighted to welcome the 2015 winner of the prestigious Carnegie Medal, Tanya Landman. With a background in theatre, Tanya’s events are funny as well as instructive. Where do ideas come from? How do you invent characters? How do you plot a murder mystery? Tanya talks about the inspiration behind some of her books – from her days working at Bristol Zoo, to her accident prone children and eternally optimistic Labradors. She’ll describe how the north Devon landscape – and a real-life villain – inspired her latest book Hell and High Water. And how a fascination with westerns led to the writing of Apache and Carnegie winner Buffalo Soldier.
Tanya will mainly be talking about her Young Adult fiction in this talk so it is recommended for ages 12+.
