John Lake will be reading from his Leeds 6 trilogy and talking about the origins and development of series. The session will include an audience Q&A. Mick McCann, author of How Leeds Changed the World, will be introducing John, asking questions, butting in and generally being annoying.

John’s newly published Speed Bomb is the conclusion to the Leeds 6 trilogy. Although it’s a stand-alone story, the novel concludes the series that began with Hot Knife and developed through the second book, Blowback.

John published his earliest stories as a teenager in the Junior Post section of the Yorkshire Evening Post, and has been publishing poetry, fiction, academic material and journalism ever since, including long stints at the music paper Sounds and Leeds Other Paper. He is the author of several novels, including his Leeds 6 Trilogy published by Armley Press. His story ‘Hidden Among Leaves’ was long-listed for the 2007 Fish-Knife Crime Short Story Award and he is a contributor to the online magazine Sabotage Times.
