Christopher Brookmyre was born in Glasgow, 1968, and educated at Glasgow University (where he earned an MA (Hons) in English and Theatre). Christopher worked as a sub-editor in London and Edinburgh, prior to the publication of his first novel, Quite Ugly One Morning, which won the First Blood Award in 1996 for the best first crime novel of the year.

Sixteen further novels followed, garnering him two Sherlock awards, the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Writing, and the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Award for writing. It’s not all wine and roses, however, as he is a St Mirren season-ticket holder and last year named them the club he hated most in the Scottish league.

Tickets: £6 (£3 for concessions). Free to SWC members.
