CRIME BOSS VAL MCDERMID TALKS TO AJ HIGGINSON ABOUT READING, WRITING AND THE DIVA LITERARY FESTIVAL

VAL MCDERMID

As one of the UK’s best-loved crime writers, Val McDermid celebrates a career which has spanned over 30 years, selling more than 11 million books, translated into 30 languages. She tells DIVA where her inspiration comes from, and how much she is looking forward to the inaugural DIVA Literary Festival in Birmingham.

DIVA: We’re delighted to hear that your 30th novel, Out Of Bounds, is number one on the UK bestseller list.

VAL MCDERMID: Thank you. I’ve been number one in the paperback charts before, but I’ve never been number one right across the board. I’ve beaten all the January diet books, which I’m told is quite an achievement! What’s nice is that it’s not just the chart placing, it’s also the numbers, they are significantly up as well, book on book.

You have a new book due out in September. Do you have a timeframe for the writing process?
