Supper with Crime writers Ian Patrick and John Dean. The Selkirk Speakers Club
We are delighted to host our February supper and speakers club with two local crime writers. Ian Patrick and John Dean.
The format for the evening is a 2 course buffet supper at 7pm followed by an informal presentation, chat and questions from the floor.
Ian Patrick spent twenty-seven years as a police officer, the majority as a detective within the Specialist Operations Command in London. A career in policing is a career in writing. Ian has been used to carrying a book and pen and making notes. Now retired, the need to write didn’t leave and evolved into fiction.
John Dean is a journalist who worked on regional newspapers for 17 years before going freelance in 1997. He has written for regional and national newspapers and for many magazines on subjects as diverse as crime, wildlife and business. He also runs creative writing courses and now lives in Dumfries and Galloway
