Join authors Louise Doughty and Charlotte Vassell to delve into the minds of their characters, discuss what drives their stories, and their processes for writing gripping psychological fiction.

Louise Doughty is the Sunday Times bestselling author of Apple Tree Yard and Platform Seven, which was recently adapted by ITV. A Bird in Winter is her latest novel, following Bird, a woman on the run, trying to work out who – if anyone – she can trust.

The In Crowd is a bitingly witty and compulsive crime novel about the bad behaviour of the rich and powerful by rising star Charlotte Vassell. Her debut novel, The Other Half, was released in 2023 and was a Waterstones Thriller of the month.

Chaired by Grace Keane, New Writing North.
