Karen M. McManus and Alexia Mason know their crime fiction. Between them they’ve written some of the most gripping and downright mysterious thriller novels for YA audiences – and they’re not finished yet! This is a unique chance to be part of a conversation with two thrill queens, where no one quite knows what might be revealed.
Karen’s YA thriller You’ll Be the Death of Me is a masterclass in sinister mystery writing – she has a legion of fans for a reason. Ivy, Mateo and Cal used to be close but now all they have in common is something they’re desperately trying to forget. In the face of murder, friendship can only stretch so far. Alexia’s new novel, Rock, Paper, Killers has a serious game of chance and danger at its heart. Escaping to the countryside to study for their exams, five Dublin teenagers have no idea what awaits them – or that one of them will never make it home.
Karen M. McManus is a New York Times and international bestselling author of YA thriller & mystery novels, including One of Us Is Lying which has been adapted by Netflix, and The Cousins.
Alexia Mason is the pseudonym of Irish crime writer Alex Barclay. She lives on the coast in West Cork, and her first gripping YA thriller is Rock Paper Killers.
