The Who's Who of the Orenda Roadshows – Part Four

Over the past few weeks I’ve been sharing my memories of Orenda Roadshow’s past, and now it’s time to tell you about the authors appearing at Orenda Roadshows yet to come. Over the course of this week I’ll be spotlighting all of the fabulous talent you can find if you turn up to one of the five events happening around the country from 24th – 28th February. Check out the other authors in parts one, two and three.

Now some of the authors are going to be very busy as they are attending every single one of the roadshows. Good news for readers as it increases the chance of meeting one of your favourite authors and my next two featured authors are pretty blinking talented. Antti Tuomainen and Simone Buchholz have produced some absolutely fabulous characters and given me hours of entertainment over the past few years. If you want to find out why, come and join me at one of the roadshows and you might even hear a reading from their latest superb books, Little Siberia and Mexico Street.

For those who don’t yet know what an Orenda Roadshow is – and if not why not? – it is your opportunity to meet and greet and listen to one of the largest collections of authors outside of a traditional book festival. Featuring a wealth of Orenda Books finest authors, all of whose books I can heartily recommend, the roadshow has something for everyone. If you are a big fan of any of the authors, or the publisher, even if you are just interested in trying out new books from a highly diverse range of writers (there are people here from as far away as Norway, Finland, Germany, France and New Zealand as well as the UK) then this is the place you want to be. So let’s find about a bit more about the authors …

About the Author

Finnish Antti Tuomainen was an award-winning copywriter when he made his literary debut in 2007 as a suspense author. In 2013, the Finnish press crowned Tuomainen the ‘King of Helsinki Noir’ when Dark as My Heart was published. With a piercing and evocative style, Tuomainen was one of the first to challenge the Scandinavian crime genre formula, and his poignant, dark and hilarious The Man Who Died became an international bestseller, shortlisting for the Petrona and Last Laugh Awards. Palm Beach Finland was an immense success, with Marcel Berlins (The Times) calling Tuomainen ‘the funniest writer in Europe’.
