It is 25 years since multi-award-winning Sunday Times bestseller Chris Brookmyre’s first book was published. Since then, he has established himself as one of the most popular crime writers in the UK. His enthusiasm for hurling himself into extra-curricular activities such as the Scotland v England Writers football, the Caledonian Challenge, Channel 5 Egg Heads, the Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers (including appearances at Glastonbury and Toronto), BBC Question Time and a live celebrity Mastermind with Clive Myrie (specialist subject Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is well known and means he has more to talk about than most.

At Bloody Scotland last year, he earned bragging rights when Stephen King opened his event by holding up a copy of Chris Brookmyre’s book, Want You Gone declaring it ‘fantastic’. A TV adaptation of his most recent book, The Cut is in development with production company Highland Midge and Chris and his wife Marisa are currently writing the scripts. It was also recently longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year.
