Two FBA titles on CrimeFest Award Nominees

Posted on 02/06/2020

Congratulations to Ursula Buchan and Simon Lelic, who have been nominated for the H.R.F Keating Award (for the best biographical book related to crime fiction) and the Best Crime Fiction Novel for Children for Beyond the 39 Steps and The Haven, respectively.

Ursula’s biography of her famous grandfather was also nominated for an Edgar, awarded by the Mystery Writers of America, earlier this year, and Simon has won or been shortlisted for numerous prizes for his adult fiction. The Haven is his first novel for young people, and you can watch the trailer and listen to him read all 30 chapters, one a day, on the official Haven YouTube Channel.
