After ten years in London, working for a City law firm, Clare Donoghue moved back to her home town in Somerset to undertake an MA in creative writing at Bath Spa University. Never Look Back was her first novel and in 2011 she was longlisted for the CWA Debut Dagger.
This Saturday is National Libraries Day, an annual celebration that aims to highlight the importance of libraries. To inspire you to visit your local library this weekend, we’ve collected quotes from some of our favourite writers on why they deserve your support.

Author Clare Donoghue tells us how she would commit the perfect murder...
Step aside Morse and Poirot, here are eleven new fictional detectives to investigate
Think ruthless criminals, corrupt cops, obsessive love and the villainy that operates on both sides of the law.

A fantastic weekend at the Yeovil Literary Festival!
A packed writers workshop with me and my pal Chris Ewan, then a great crime panel event with Sharon Bolton, Elly Griffiths & Tammy Cohen that I was lucky enough to chair. Then today a brilliant turn out for our Criminal Minds book club to discuss Raven Black by Ann Cleeves followed by an interview with the woman herself, introduced by me and chaired by Chris.
The authors were amazing, talented and generous and the audience were enthusiastic and.....they bought books, hooray! :-)
Thank you :-)

So, now I'm back in the land of the living it's event time.
I'm delighted to part of the Hillingdon Literary Festival on Tuesday 11th October, sharing the stage with fabulous fellows Tim Weaver and Chris Ewan. If you can make it please do come along :-)
Apologies for being off-grid for so long. I was delivering a baby and a book - both are still a work in progress :-)
