John Creasey was one of the world’s most prolific authors. Born in Southfields in 1908, he spent his later years in Salisbury, where he died in 1973. In between, he published over 600 books following 742 rejection slips, with worldwide sales in November 1971 of over 80 million copies in at least 5000 different editions in 28 different languages. He won a host of top awards including, in 1969, the Mystery Writers of America’s Grand Master. Back in the UK, he was instrumental in founding the Crime Writers Association in 1953.
Richard Creasey is an author in his own right, as well as a longstanding leading television producer. In this special talk in Salisbury library, he will look back over his father’s life and offer a fascinating glimpse at one of the most influential crime writers of the twentieth century.
