Meet the author! - Lia Middleton
Time & Location
About the Event
Lia Middleton is a barrister who specialises in crime and prison law, and lives with her husband and two young children in Buckinghamshire.
When They Find Her, a psychological thriller about a panic-induced lie, is Lia's first novel.
She signed with Kate Burke at The Blake Friedmann Literary Agency last summer, and at the start of lockdown was able to announce that she had secured a two-book deal with Michael Joseph.
It will be a major launch for Michael Joseph, publishing in Hardback, eBook and Audio in Spring 2021, with a paperback to follow.
Lia said: ‘I’m ecstatic and honoured to be working with Clio and the team at Michael Joseph. I was blown away by the team’s passion and enthusiasm, and by Clio's vision for the book: it was clear from the moment I spoke to her that Clio was the perfect editor to bring my novel and its characters to the world. I can't wait for readers to discover Naomi and to find themselves thrust into the centre of her dark and complex life.’
We are going to chat to Lia about her writing process, agent submissions, life in lockdown and how it feels to be working towards her publication date!
All proceeds from this event will be donated to FareShare. FareShare are fighting hunger and food waste by redistributing surplus food to frontline charities. Last year they redistributed enough food for 36.7 million meals!
If you have a question for Lia, you'll be able to submit it on the night, or head over to our Instagram account @GreenwichWriters and send us a message.
