Were there any women crime writers before Agatha Christie? Why do we love reading crime books? This talk takes us from the 1800’s to the beginning of WW2. Discover the early women pioneers of this genre. Armed only with quill and ink, they not only whipped up a storm of murder, mystery and mayhem, they were best sellers! Find out who were the Four Queens of The Golden Age of Detective Fiction, the famous detectives they created and why they are still popular today.

About Janet James

I am a professional voice actor with twenty-five years experience, I’ve voiced characters in children’s animation shows (including Postman Pat!) and I’ve worked in radio drama, narrated TV documentaries and voiced TV commercials - as well as providing audio commentaries for corporate businesses. I’ve enjoyed speaking for many WI’s, Probus Clubs, Townswomen’s Guilds and the U3A. An enthusiastic response from audiences has given me the impetus to write and share more talks! My talks last between 45 and 60 minutes.
