Writing THAT Book  with Gordon Brown

About Writing THAT Book with Gordon Brown

Ever felt like writing the one book that everyone talks about having in them - but don’t know where to start? Gordon Brown is a thriller and crime author and one of the founding directors of Bloody Scotland, Scotland’s International Crime Writing Festival. He has six books to his name and will share his experience of writing and publishing - the good & bad, the ups & downs and, of course, the dos & don’ts.

In a former life, Gordon delivered pizzas in Toronto, sold non-alcoholic beer in the Middle East, launched a creativity business, floated a high-tech company on the London Stock Exchange, compered the main stage at a two-day music festival and was once booed by 49,000 people while on the pitch at a major football Cup Final - so he knows a bit about writing and holding down a day job.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Writing THAT Book with Gordon Brown are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
