Scottish crime novelist Val McDermid is 66 today, which is about 400 years old in Fife Years. 

 

The Tony Hill novels were adapted into popular ITV detective series Wire in the Blood. Her recurring serial killer from the late 90s, Jacko Vance (played by John Michie on TV) was based on Jimmy Savile. He never sued despite it being quite spot on about his MO as he never realised it was meant to be him!

If it wasn't so expensive I'd take it up again.  I haven't felt any benefit from giving it up over two years ago.  Worse if anything.
