Join us in welcoming Adam S Leslie, Jen WIlliams and Tori Bovalino in conversation with Lucie McKnight Hardy to discuss their latest novels, Lost In The Garden and The Hungry Dark, and how they go about putting the fear into folklore.Adam S Leslie (he/him) grew up in deepest rural Lincolnshire sometime in the 1980s.As well as an author, Adam is also a screenwriter, a musician and songwriter (under the name Berlin Horse), and produces and co-hosts RetroTube Archive Television Podcast with his best friend Heather, where they say cheeky things about old TV. However, he can’t do anything useful like drive a car or be married.Adam likes weird cocktails and old Doctor Who, and is only slightly obsessed by The Beatles.Jen Williams (she/her) has been a fan of grisly fairy tales from her youth, and gone on to write dark, unsettling thrillers with strong female leads, and character driven fantasy novels with plenty of adventure and magic. Her first thriller, Dog Rose Dirt, was published by HarperCollins in 2021.Tori Bovalino (she/her) is the author of The Devil Makes Three and Not Good for Maidens, and edited the Indie- bestselling anthology, The Gathering Dark.
