Christopher Edge

Critically acclaimed author Christopher Edge has won prestigious prizes for several of his books and the Times has chosen them as best books of the year and for their ‘book of the week’ feature. His historical mystery trilogy Twelve Minutes to Midnight is brilliant and, most recently, he's written incredible stories about space and the laws of the universe. If you're a fan of Chris and Wychwood then you'll already be familiar with Albie Bright, Jamie Drake and Maisie Day.

This festival we get to encounter a new character, Charlie Noon, from Chris's latest book The Longest Night of Charlie Noon. It's a timeless novel for anyone who's ever felt lost.

Secrets, spies or maybe even a monster… What lies in the heart of the wood? Charlie, Dizzy and Johnny are determined to discover the truth, but when night falls without warning they find themselves trapped in a nightmare. Lost in the woods, strange dangers and impossible puzzles lurk in the shadows. As time plays tricks, can Charlie solve this mystery and find a way out of the woods? But what if this night never ends…?

You really will wish Chris’s event does not end but you will have chance to meet him afterwards and ask him all the questions you need answers to about Charlie’s adventure.
