Popular Crime Writer Kate Ellis Launches Latest Title
On 6 December Kate Ellis welcomed another addition to her list of titles. Kate is best known for her long-running series featuring archaeology graduate turned police inspector, Wesley Peterson. However, when she published her first book in her new Albert Lincoln Trilogy set in the aftermath of the First World War, A High Mortality of Doves, it seemed like a particular cause for celebration.
Now the second book in the trilogy is out and the event was marked by a launch party at award winning bookshop, Simply Books in Bramhall, Cheshire. The publication of The Boy Who Lived With the Dead, was properly celebrated and on the evening Kate spoke about the inspiration behind the book as well as mentioning the unusual setting (a thinly disguised Alderley Edge – now home to premiership footballers but back in 1920 when the action takes place, the haunt of wealthy cotton manufacturers from nearby Manchester). After a reading from The Boy Who Lived With the Dead’s dramatic introduction, wine and nibble consumption was resumed and a great time was had by all.
The picture shows Kate celebrating with fellow crime writers Caroline England, Christine Poulson, Sarah Ward and Chris Simms.
