What are the pleasures and pitfalls of writing a successful series with recurring characters? How do you keep it fresh? Or know when to move on? Two superstars reveal all about their practice.

Iceland's Queen of Noir, Yrsa Sigurdardottir, gave us the award-winning, bestselling Thora Gudmundsdottir series, as well as stand-alone novels and children's books. She's since launch the Hulder and Freyja Children's House series, the latest of which is The Reckoning.

Mark Billingham's just published his 15th Tom Thorne novel, The Killing Habit. He's set his DI a tricky new challenge: using his knowledge of the psychological signs of a killer-cruelty, lack of empathy, the killing of animals - can he stop a series of homicides before they happen?

Chaired by Fiona Stalker
