We are thrilled to welcome Elle Brooks to the Leeds signing!
About the author…
Author of Reveal, Promises Hurt, Forgotten Promises and Empty Promises.
Writer. Reader. Caffeine Addict. Hopeless Romantic.
Elle is a little neurotic; she functions on a tiny amount of sleep, and a huge amount of caffeine. Elle loves old movies, green skittles, and has an irrational fear of stormy weather.
When she’s not locked away scribbling down the crazy stories that occupy her mind, she can be found at home in East Yorkshire with her husband and two children.
Elle can be persuaded to do just about anything with the promise of a good book, new shoes, or a bottle of bubbles.
Oh, and she also loves to write.

We would like to welcome A V Scott to the Leeds 2018 event!
A.V. SCOTT is a successful self-published author of romance and poetry.
She is the author of six books, including the Amazon Best Seller, “High Heels in New York”.
She recently published a collection of poetry spanning over twenty years of her life. It includes the very first poem she wrote. She was twelve years old at the time.
A.V. Scott is a native New Yorker, currently living in Bangkok with her husband and daughter. She’s an emotional, sarcastic, and fun-loving mom who believes happy hour shouldn’t be limited to one lousy hour.
When she’s not busy penning away her next book, she’s interating on social media with her fans.
Her love for the written word began at the age of twelve when she found something deeply profound in her mother’s physchology and poetry books. Shortly after, she wrote her first poem, Remember, which can be found in her first Poetry Anthology titled Dedications: A Woman’s life through poetry.
Note from A V
HI! I love to travel and looking forward to being with you in Leeds. I Have a healthy obsession with high heels. And, can’t function without my morning cup of coffee 🙂

We are thrilled to announce that A P Bateman will be with us at Darker!
Amazon #1 bestselling author of The Ares Virus, The Contract Man,
Lies & Retribution and The Town.
Hello, very pleased to be joining this event. Here is a little about me.
I enjoy reading all sorts of crime, mysteries and thrillers. The stories I write are exactly the kind of books I would like to read. I also enjoy watching most types of films depending on my mood, some favourites being most of Hitchcock’s work, classic westerns, most Clint Eastwood offerings, James Bond and anything with Steve McQueen. I enjoy tv murder mysteries especially period dramas from Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Writing has always been my dream job, especially as a secret agent astronaut, deep sea diving cowboy doesn’t really exist. I have had a wide variety of careers (actually pretty rubbish jobs) including chef, hotel manager, surfboard shaper, antique dealer and private investigator/bodyguard.
The bodyguard bit was a little more serious and I trained in close protection with ex-military, police and special forces. I have also trained on US SWAT ranges in the past with serving police officers which I feel gives a unique insight into weapons and tactics which adds realism to my writing.
I have studied karate on and off most of my life and still enjoy training, shoot clay pigeons and big scary paper targets with very loud guns and surf when I can.
Between being a business owner and constant writer I still manage to find time to provide an unpaid taxi and entertainment service to my two young children and their many friends.
From the editor
A P Bateman has reached the no1 position on Amazon in the following categories: Military, Techno-thriller and Horror. His books are in Amazon Kindle’s top 5% of most completed reads, a statistic that he takes as the most important of his career. “I want to write stories that people love to read. I once tossed a book into the ocean because it was woefully slow. I never want to be that author. And I’ll do without the awards and fortune if it means I can keep the reader engaged and make them wish they had another of my stories to read…”

So pleased A P Bateman will be with us and tickets are on sale now to meet 50 darker authors in Peterborough uk

We are thrilled to welcome Max Hardy to Darker!
Max lives in the Scottish Borders with his wife, family, two cats and two dogs.
In 2008 he rediscovered a pile of notebooks in a box in a cupboard. They were full of poems, drawings, short stories and other scribbles that he had written as a child and during his teens. He decided it was time to pick up where he had left off in his teens and in 2009, compiled his first poetry collection, ‘Soul Whispers’, as a Christmas present for his wife Lilibeth.
In 2010 he started working on his first novel, picking up some ideas from the old notebooks. Over the next three years he fleshed out the storylines for a trilogy and in 2013, published the first part, ‘Angels Bleed’. ‘Her Moons Denouement’ was published in 2014 and the final part of the trilogy, ‘Murder Path’ was published in 2015.
He has also published a further two poetry collections, ‘My Dark Disease’ in 2012 and ‘The Alchemy Of Swaying Hips’ in 2014.
His next projects are a new poetry collection entitled ‘Catching Reflections’ and a new DCI Jeremiah Strange psychological thriller entitled ‘Voodoo Blood’.

She loves writing anything from Young Adult to Suspense Romance.
A hello note from Michelle :
Hi! so excited to be seeing you in Leeds!
Here is a little bit about me. I live in the cozy town Alberton, South Africa and spend my spare time taking care of exotic birds. I read as many books as I can get my hands on, and I’m a sucker for quotes. Animals are my weakness, I love them dearly. I don’t have a specific genre I’m most fond of, so you’ll be seeing weird and wonderful things coming from me.
Thank you for all your support, each and every single one of you.
Sunshine Smiles from around the world
