Kate Atkinson

Semi-cheating, as she was born in England. BUT she lives in Edinburgh and studied at Dundee.

I loved Behind the Scenes at the Museum and this summer read Case Histories and One Good Turn. Engaging and funny.

Iain Banks wrote a book called A Song Of Stone which I really struggled to get through due to the unremitting darkness it portrayed in human nature.

J = Quintin Jardine, who has written many crime novels about Bob Skinner, an Edinburgh policeman.

Yay! Quentin Jardine. Love his books.

But since I slipped in Kate Atkinson for K, can I go straight to the wonderful children's writer

John Lingard

for L?

Next: M (Should be lots of those!)

I do indeed mean Joan. My head knew that, but obviously my fingers weren't quite in synch with the brain. (A common enough problem, I fear.)

Fair play Mona ... and talking of play, does anyone have an "N" for the next stage of this game?

Stef Penney. She wrote The Tenderness of Wolves. I was amazed to learn the she's never been to Canada, did all her research in the British Library.

There aren't going to be many Qs, I think, whatever the game. The only one I can come up with here is Quentin Jardine, which we used for J.

If no one has any offers, I'll suggest John Buchan (The 39 Steps) for J instead, though I think there's more plenty of choice here. (I really do mean John this time!) And make Jardine the Q.

In which case someone could suggest an R.

What do you think?
