Welcome to Peter Tickler's Website
National Crime Writing MonthThe National Crime Writing Month (actually more like 6 weeks, but who's counting?) returns with a vengeance (not to mention murder) this summer. I shall be giving talks in libraries in Long Buckby (with Stephen Booth), Hungerford and Mortimer, as well as to Agewell (Oxford) and Prime Time (Abingdon).
What is the connection between watching Oxford United, writing crime fiction and porridge? Check out my article in the Oxford United programme (vs Morecambe, 29 March 2013) and see if you can relate to it!
Crime Writing, Oxford United and Porridge
Peter's Blood in Oxford novels have been widely praised for their portrayal of the side-streets and back-streets of Oxford. Peter also very much enjoys talking readers through the process of writing crime fiction. He has in recent months done a tour of several Oxfordshire libraries, been the warm-up man for a donkey on the radio and persuaded the inmates of one of Her majesty's Prisons help him him devise characters and plot for a novel. Feel free to contact him if you fancy engaging him for your society or event.
Check out this video: Peter talks frankly about crime writing and why he prefers Town to Gown for his murderous tales.
