Q&A with Stav Sherez on Harrogate

We pitch our fiendish Harrogate questions to Eleven Days author Stav Sherez.


Eleven Days 


What’s your favourite thing about Harrogate?

Hanging out on the lawn. Talking with fans. Talking with other crime writers. Long hot days and longer, wilder nights. Realising everyone goes through the same stuff you do. Realising that there are people who actually like your books. Seeing old friends and making new ones. Savage hangovers and that feeling of being a teenager again, staying up all night, discussing books under starlight.
