What draws us to read about human taboos like murder, incest, and violence? Is it because we all secretly get a dark sadist pleasure out of it, because we are interested in understanding how the criminal mind works, or that we just like a good detective mystery that gets us asking 'who dunnit?'

Founder of the Harrogate Crime Festival, Val McDermid , and group analyst Sue Einhorn explore the underworld of crime fiction in a discussion organised by Conneting Conversations . The event costs £9.50, and will be held at Kings Place on the 12th May.

Born in the Scottish mining community of Kirkcaldy, award winning writer, Val McDermid, was the first person from a Scottish state school to graduate from Oxford with a degree in English. She had a sixteen-year career in journalism, before publishing her first novel in 1987. Today, McDermid has written twenty-six best sellers. She has recently written her first children's book, My Granny is a Pirate, and her latest novel, Cross and Burn will be released on the 27th April.

After starting out as a literary agent, then spending many years in youth work, Sue Einhorn began a career in psychotherapy, which now spans over twenty-five years. She works with groups, couples, and individuals, as well as working with Freedom from Torture .
