International bestselling crime and thriller writer, Peter James, famous for the Brighton-based Roy Grace series, is to host an ‘evening with’ in aid of Sussex charity, Care for Veterans.

Mr James, author of 12 consecutive Sunday Times no.1s whose books have sold 19 million copies worldwide, will talk about his life and extensive career, as well as answer questions from members of the audience. Some of his works will also be on sale at the event, and guests will have the opportunity to get them signed by the author.

“All of us owe a debt to our veterans”

Mr James explains: “All of us owe a debt beyond our imagination to our veterans. It is always humbling to meet them, and it is a very great honour and joy to be able to participate in supporting them.”

Elizabeth Baxter, Head of Fundraising and Marketing at Care for Veterans, said: “We are delighted that such a well-known and well-respected author as Peter James is helping to raise money for our veterans. It is so kind of him to undertake this event, which we know will be popular as he has so many fans and is so well read. This is a remarkable opportunity for Care for Veterans and the money raised will be very well spent on those ex-Servicemen and women in our care.”
