Our guest, Ben Aaronovitch, has reached an important milestone - his fantastically popular Rivers of London series is ten years old!

Born and raised in London, Ben had the sort of unrelentingly uninteresting childhood that drives a person to drink or science fiction. The later proved useful in his early career when he wrote for Doctor Who (before it was fashionable), Casualty and the cheapest soap opera ever made - Jupiter Moon.

It was while running the crime and science fiction sections at  the Covent Garden branch of Waterstones that he conceived the notion of writing novels instead. Thus was the Rivers of London series born and when the first book proved to be a runaway success, he waited all of five minutes to give up the day job and return to the bliss that is a full time writing career.

Come along, this is a brilliant opportunity to probe into the mind of a great author. You will be able to post your questions throughout the session through the chat-based Q&A, so get your questions ready.
