We were delighted to welcome author Sophie Hannah who came to speak with our Sixth Form students as part of their enrichment programme.
Sophie Hannah is a Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling writer of crime fiction, published in forty-nine languages and fifty-one territories. Her books have sold millions of copies worldwide. In 2014, with the blessing of Agatha Christie’s family and estate, Sophie published a new Poirot novel, The Monogram Murders, which was a bestseller in more than fifteen countries. She has since published two more Poirot novels, Closed Casket and The Mystery of Three Quarters, both of which were instant Sunday Times Top Ten bestsellers. Most recently, she has published a self-help book called How to Hold a Grudge: From Resentment to Contentment – The Power of Grudges to Transform Your Life.
Sophie entertained students with her passion and enthusiasm for writing and answered many insightful questions put to her by our Sixth Formers.
Sophie has recently helped to create a Masters Degree in Crime and Thriller Writing at the University of Cambridge where she teaches and is Course Director. She is also the founder of the Dream Author coaching programme for writers.
