Nick Triplow
Nick Triplow researched and wrote the social history books Family Ties, The Women They Left Behind, Distant Water, and Pattie Slappers that explored the working lives of people in largely vanished Humber industries. In 2012, his novel Frank’s Wild Years, took him back to south London. After almost a decade researching the life and work of British crime fiction pioneer, Ted Lewis, the biography Getting Carter: Ted Lewis and the Birth of Brit Noir was published by No Exit Press in 2017. By then, he’d met Hull crime writer, Nick Quantrill. They set up crime fiction events under the tag The Humber Beat. With Hull as City of Culture on the horizon, they got together with Nikki East and, between them, curated the first Hull Noir crime fiction festival.
Nick Quantrill
Nick Quantrill was born and raised in Hull, an isolated industrial city in East Yorkshire. His Private Investigator novels featuring Joe Geraghty are published by Fahrenheit Press with the latest being ‘Sound of the Sinners’. Nick is also the co-founder of the Hull Noir crime writing festival.
Alan Parks
Alan Parks has worked in the music industry for over twenty years. His debut novel Bloody January was one of the top crime debuts of 2018 and was shortlisted for the prestigious international crime prize the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière. He lives and works in Glasgow.
