This January we'll be kicking off the Winter Season with the multi-million bestselling author of the Lewis trilogy, Scotland's very own, Peter May. Peter comes to Greenside Church to discuss his chilling new mystery set in the brooding Scottish Highlands, A Winter Grave. A fitting subject for a cold, gloomy, late January eve! So come join us with a glass of wine in celebrating one of Scotland's most cherished authors.
Peter May was born and raised in Scotland. He was an award-winning journalist at the age of twenty-one and a published novelist at twenty-six. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BBC, he quit journalism and during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland's most successful television dramatists. He created three prime-time drama series, presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland as script editor and producer, and worked on more than 1,000 episodes of ratings-topping drama before deciding to leave television to return to his first love, writing novels. In 2021, he was awarded the CWA Dagger in the Library Award. He has also won several literature awards in France, received the USA's Barry Award for The Blackhouse, the first in his internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy; and in 2014 was awarded the ITV Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Best Read of the Year award for Entry Island. Peter now lives in South-West France with his wife, writer Janice Hally.
