An Evening with Martina Cole

Wed 19 Aug 2015

Bestselling crime writer Martina Cole, talks about her writing and the stories that inspire her. Martina Cole is a phenomenon: with over twenty novels to her name, of which over a dozen have been No.1 bestsellers, she has spent more weeks in the No.1 slot on the original fiction bestseller list than any other adult novelist, and she continues to smash sales records with each of her books, which have sold fourteen million copies in total. Not bad for someone who left school at fifteen with no qualifications. 

Martina’s novels are recognized as different type of crime novel. “I write from the criminal’s point of view. And I show what happens to their families.”

Martina will be giving us a glimpse of her latest hard-hitting and uncompromising crime drama, Get Even. The event will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Martina has long been acknowledged as the number one author in UK prisons, and she has been a strong advocate for literacy and creative writing for prisoners. This event is presented by New Writing South in association with LLL Productions (, for whom Martina will be contributing to a unique festival staged within the walls of HMP Lewes.
