Val McDermid sat alongside Stella on the Dangerous Dykes panel at Harrogate Crime Festival, to discuss how lesbian writers have come to dominate the world of crime fiction.
Lindy Cameron writes crime, science fiction, action adventures and true crime. She created the Melbourne-based PI series featuring Kit O’Malley and has also written two further novels and three collections of real-life Australian murder cases.
