Best selling author Dan Waddell is coming to Hammersmith Library on Thursday June 16, from 6.30pm till 7.30pm.

His visit comes during National Crime Writing Week and jDan will talk about Genealogy and Crime fiction - The Dark Side of our Family Trees.

Author and journalist Danl has written more than a dozen books, including the bestselling guide that accompanied the hugely successful BBC TV series, Who Do You Think You Are?

This gave him the idea for a series of crime novels based on genealogy. The first book in the series, The Blood Detective was the UK's bestselling ebook and nominated for CWA New Blood Dagger, and the second, Blood Atonement, was released in 2009 to critical acclaim both in the UK and USA.

The third in the series will be released later this year and Dan is also writing a thriller set on the doomed Titanic to be released in spring 2011, as well as a series of books aimed at children.

Admission to the talk is free. For more information and to register interest please email elin.jones@lbhf.gov.uk or phone 020 8753 3812.
