In Conversation With... Val McDermid
Britain's queen of crime fiction with more than 30 books to her name and 16 million worldwide sales.
Her work was adapted for the successful Wire in the Blood series on ITV starring Robson Green and for the last 20 years she has produced at least one fresh story per year and says she has no notion of slowing down.
McDermid is from Kirkcaldy and is a keen Raith Rovers fan.
She also broadcasts on BBC Radio 4 and has become a regular on BBC One's Question Time panel.
