Welcome to Peter Tickler's Website
Peter Tickler's Crime Fiction UpdatePeter had a lot of fun when he joined the Deadly Dames for the day at the BookCrossing Convention 2015 in St Hilda's College, Oxford. They had a very boisterous audience drawn from all round the world as they talked about reading and writing - but no arithmetic fortunately!
He has various other events to look forward to in 2015.
1. Peter will be visiting the Chipping Norton Literary Festival where he is one of a number of writers to be featured in a photographic exhibition by Jane Stillwell.
2. Peter will be giving some of his trademark highly interactive talks as part of National Crime Reading Month during June. These currently include the Burford Literary Festival on Monday 8 June, plus two talks in his home town of Abingdon (the North Abingdon WI on Wednesday 3 June and the library on Wednesday 17 June).
3. Other highlights of Peter's year will be the release of a short film scripted and directed by him (Wrong Number). It stars a very well known member of the Midsomer Murders cast (not saying who - yet!) and will be released this summer. He has also delivered a new crime novel to a publisher.
One of Peter's scripts has already been released. A Place for Everything was filmed in Shenzhen in China and released to coincode with Halloween. Click HERE to see it - if you dare!
Incidentally, all of Peter's Blood in Oxford books are now available as e-books priced less than £3.00.
Peter loves talking to and listening to his readers (and potential readers). He has spoken in all sorts of places, including a castle and a prison, so why not invite him along to your favourite organisation or your bookgroup. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
