All hosted by Moniack Mhor on Zoom Pro, usually with an opportunity to ask questions at the end. More of these to come during 2024 – we’ll keep you posted! Meanwhile, enjoy …

Feeding the Senses

In this 2-hour masterclass led by author Leye Adenle, we’ll learn how to intricately weave sensory details into your crime and thriller stories, heightening tension, and creating an immersive experience that keeps the reader locked in the fictive dream.  Includes writing exercises and a short Q&A.



Leye Adenle is a Nigerian-born author, known for his crime thriller series. His debut novel, Easy Motion Tourist, won the prestigious Prix Marianne in France in 2016. The next two books in the series are When Trouble Sleeps (2018) and Unfinished Business (2022). 

Adenle’s writing is characterised by its vivid descriptions of Nigerian society, which he portrays with a gritty realism that captures the complexity of life in a country that is often misunderstood by outsiders. His novels delve into issues such as corruption, inequality, and violence, while also exploring the humanity of his characters and the choices they make in the face of adversity. 

In addition to his writing, Adenle is a frequent speaker on issues related to African literature and culture, and has given talks at universities and literary festivals around the world. He is also an advocate for gender equality, and his writing often explores the experiences of women in Nigerian society. 

With a growing reputation as one of the most exciting voices in contemporary crime fiction, Leye Adenle’s work has been praised for its sharp prose, memorable characters, and unflinching portrayal of the darker side of human nature.
