BESTSELLING BRITISH AUTHOR TO VISIT QUEENSTOWN

Martina Cole, the queen of crime fiction, is set to visit Queenstown as part of the New Zealand tour to promote her latest title Revenge ($37.99 RRP, on sale October 29, Hachette NZ).

Fans will have the opportunity to enjoy an intimate evening with the superstar author at Amisfield Winery & Bistro on Thursday 14 November.

The dinner event sees Martina in conversation with local book industry personality Miranda Spary. The pair will discuss Martina’s incredible career, which encompasses 20 bestselling novels.

They’ll also talk about her unusual rise to fame. Martina was married at 16 and divorced a year later, became a single mother at 18 and struggled to make ends meet, bringing up her son in a run-down council flat. At 21 she lost both her parents within six months of each other and it was around that time she started working on what would become her debut novel, Dangerous Lady.

A decade later that book sold for what was, at the time, a record breaking advance. It became an instant bestseller and Martina has gone on to enjoy immense success with over 11 million copies of her books sold worldwide..

Tickets to the event are $50, which includes a glass of bubbles, canapés and a three-course dinner. Numbers are strictly limited so fans need to act quickly to secure their spot by contacting Amisfield, phone:03 442 0556 ex 3 or email: events@amisfield.co.nz.


A selection of Martina’s books will be on sale thanks to Paper Plus Cromwell and she will be available to sign them.
