Our Founding Patron, Crime Writer Alanna Knight MBE

"I am honoured to have been invited to be the Founding Patron in support of Bloody Scotland. Having been in at the very beginning when the festival was proposed, I am so excited about is success and the way that it has confirmed Scotland's place as the very forefront of crime writing."

Alex Gray: "Lin and I were enjoying that (second) bottle of prosecco and putting the world to rights, as one does... We reflected on the fact that we have so many fabulous Scottish writers and yet we had to travel from Scotland to south of the border to attend crime writing festivals... 'Why not have our own festival?' we thought."
