On the left you will find links to all the pages of the site, full of interesting facts about me and my writing and the various periods in which my books are set. There is an account, specially written for this site, of the true history of John Rawlings and how I first met him. And there's a regularly updated letter with all my news.
On December 15th you'll find me - and another 15 crime writers! - at The United Reform Church, Alfriston, East Sussex, BN26 5UX for a one day event all about books: if you are interested in questions like "What is literature?", "Do books have a future?", and "Is there an art to writing?" or if you'd like to hear how writers (including me!) spend "The working day", then do come along and join us for Crime before Christmas. And don't forget to come and say hello!
My latest book - which you can read about below - is a Nick Lawrence mystery; and this is where you can find news of our old friend John Rawlings! I hope you enjoy my books, and that I will hear from you at deryn [at] derynlake.com .
Now you can also find me on Facebook!
