Ashington Library is getting ready to welcome a visit from bestselling Northumbrian born crime writer, L J Ross on Wednesday 13 September from 4pm-5pm. LJ Ross is the author of the bestselling series of six DCI Ryan mystery novels all set in and around our beautiful county of Northumberland.


Louise will be talking about how she came to leave her career as a lawyer in London to settle in Bath with her family and pursue her dream of writing. She will be making a return visit to her home ground to discuss how the local landscape has inspired her to write her novels which include Holy Island, Sycamore Gap and the recently published Cragside.

Come along and enjoy a cup of tea and a chat and take the opportunity to purchase copies of the books and have them signed by the author.  Tickets for this event are £3 and are bookable beforehand via Eventbrite at:
