On World Book Day in March, four members of the Medieval Murderers writing team held court at Newport Central Library in south Wales. The nearest thing to armour present was a metal walking stick in the possession of someone in the audience, indicating what a jolly time was had by all.
The Medieval Murderers holding court were Bernard Knight, Philip Gooden, Susanna Gregory and recent recruit, Karen Maitland. (Others members of the group are Michael Jecks, Ian Morson and C J Sansom.) If anyone arrived thinking this would be an event in which to sit and listen, this was ‘think again’ time. No sooner than the quartet started to speak, questions from the audience ensued and a proper conversation developed. It was like a party where everyone gets to hear the conversation.
Interesting points of note included the following:
All Medieval Murderers present were great fun – as they promise – and no one shirked any questions, with attendees liking to probe all matters writing and every detail checked.
