Marnie Riches on Mancunian Noir and Gritty Thrillers – Joined Up#70

It’s episode 70 that brings you a fascinating chat with gritty Thriller writer, Marnie Riches talking about her own unique writing journey and the background to her George McKenzie and Manchester Gangland books. We’ve also got another review in Book Blogger’s Corner from regular blogger, BiblioManiac, Katherine Sunderland.

Marnie grew up on a rough estate in Manchester, aptly within sight of the dreaming spires of Strangeways prison.

Having authored the first six books of HarperCollins Children’s Time-Hunters series, her award-winning, best-selling George McKenzie crime thrillers for adults were inspired, in part, by her own youth and time spent in The Netherlands as a student. Her new Manchester series about the criminal underworld of the UK’s second city launched March 2017 with her latest book in that series – The Cover Up – just released and available from all your favourite book sellers.
