Event Details

Join an evening of interesting conversation as Tameside Libraries welcome authors Matt Hilton and James Ellson. Both authors worked in the police force for a number of years before quitting their ‘day jobs’ and turning their hand to writing.

Matt is the author of twelve high-octane Joe Hunter thrillers, including his most recent novel Marked For Death, and five books in the Tess Grey and Po Villere thriller series, the latest being Collision Course. James was a police officer for 15 years, starting in London and finishing as a DI at Moss Side in Manchester. He’s been writing ever since, six manuscripts including a memoir, From Cop to Coppicer. His first book, The Trail was published in spring 2020 and made The Guardian’s 2020 Not the Booker Prize longlist.

Louise is a multi-award winning broadcaster, speaker and event host with 5 gold awards for radio presenting and journalism. She can be heard on BBC Radio Manchester, Greatest Hits Radio and on her podcast Autie Talk, and she previously presented on Tameside Radio for 5 years. Louise will be delving into our authors’ journeys into writing.
