Granite Noir: In Conversation with Tina Baker
Spend a fascinating hour with journalist and broadcaster turned author Tina Baker as we delve into her new novel Make Me Clean, with chair Fiona Stalker.
She will leave your surfaces sparkling. But she may well leave you dead… Maria is a good woman and a good cleaner. If you’re thinking of hiring her, you should probably know that Maria might have killed the terrible husband, the terrible boss and the terrible neighbours. She may also have murdered the man she loved. She didn’t set out to kill anyone, of course, but her clients have hired her to clean up their lives, and she takes her job seriously.
Chaired by Fiona Stalker
This event will be live streamed and can be viewed online.
About the Speakers
Tina Baker, the daughter of a window cleaner and fairground traveller, worked as a journalist and broadcaster for thirty years and is probably best known as a television critic for the BBC and GMTV. After so many hours watching soaps gave her a widescreen bum, she got off it and won Celebrity Fit Club. She now avoids writing-induced DVT by working as a Fitness Instructor.
Call Me Mummy was Tina’s first novel, inspired by her own unsuccessful attempts to become a mother. Despite the grief of that, she’s not stolen a child – so far. But she does rescue cats, whether they want to be rescued or not.
