An Evening With Helen Fields & Isabel Ashdown

Tuesday 11th February 19:00 at Brighton

We’re excited to be welcoming (nearly!) local authors Helen Fields & Isabel Ashdown to discuss their new books.


Helen Fields studied law at the University of East Anglia, then went on to the Inns of Court School of Law in London. After completing her pupillage, she joined chambers in Middle Temple where she practised criminal and family law for thirteen years. After her second child was born, Helen left the Bar.

Together with her husband David, she runs a film production company, acting as script writer and producer. Her ‘Perfect’ series is set in Scotland, where Helen feels most at one with the world. Helen and her husband now live in Los Angeles with their three children and two dogs.


She will be discussing her newest novel, Perfect Kill, number six in the DI Callanach series.


Isabel’s writing career first took off when an extract of her Brighton-based debut Glasshopper won a national writing competition and gained critical acclaim. Today she is the author of seven books, and her latest thrillers Little Sister and Beautiful Liars have both been shortlisted in the Dead Good Reader Awards. Isabel has long associations with the city, including a stint as Writer in Residence at the University of Brighton, where her mother studied art fifty years earlier. She is a Royal Literary Fund associate, currently leading their Chichester Reading Round – a group dedicated to the pure pleasure of reading. 


She will be introducing Lake Child, an atmospheric psychological thriller set in a remote valley town in the heart of Norway’s ancient fjords.
