Candace Robb and Chris Nickson

with Kate Lyall Grant (Severn House)

York Centre for Writing and York Literature Festival

6-8 Tuesday 21st May 2019, DeGrey Lecture Theatre, York St John University


Since doing her graduate work in medieval history and literature, Candace Robb has been engaged in bringing to life the rich culture of the late medieval period, from the arts to the politics. She is the internationally acclaimed author of seventeen crime novels featuring medieval sleuths Kate Clifford (The Service of the Dead, A Twisted Vengeance, A Murdered Peace), Owen Archer (The Apothecary Rose, The Lady Chapel, The Nun’s Tale, The King’s Bishop, The Riddle of St. Leonard’s, A Gift of Sanctuary, A Spy for the Redeemer, The Cross-legged Knight, The Guilt of Innocents, A Vigil of Spies, A Conspiracy of Wolves) and Margaret Kerr (A Trust Betrayed, The Fire in the Flint, A Cruel Courtship). As Emma Campion she wrote two novels about the powerful women in the court of King Edward III, The King’s Mistress (Alice Perrers) and A Triple Knot (Joan of Kent). Candace lives in Seattle, though her heart resides in York.

Chris Nickson was born and raised in Leeds, but only discovered his passion for the city and its history when living in the US. He’s been a music journalist for the last 25 years, and since 2010 has been publishing historical crimes novels set in Leeds (plus a couple of Chesterfield and Seattle). In his hometown, he’s ranged from the 1730s (the Richard Nottingham novels) to the 1950s (enquiry agent Dan Markham). Currently he lives in the 19th century, diving his time between the 1820s (The Hanging Psalm) and the 1890s (The Leaden Heart is the latest in the Tom Harper series,). Although he lived in Seattle and was a fan of Candace’s work while he lived there, he didn’t come to know her until he’d come back to live in Leeds, where he still makes his home.
