Orlando Murrin | Crime Fiction Author & Food Writer


       I enjoying getting out and about and meeting fellow writers and readers. Based in Exeter, Devon, I travel frequently to London and further afield for festivals and events.

       I am a seasoned cookery demonstrator for crowds large (audiences of over 3000 at the BBC Good Food Show at the NEC) or small (local food festivals).

       I love book festivals, and have been a panellist at Budleigh Salterton and Appledore Literary Festivals. I have taught food writing courses for the Arvon Foundation, at the British Library and Kingston Lacy.

        If you are a member of a book club I would be honoured to be invited along, either in person or virtually. Click here for ideas and resources (spoiler alert).
