Ruth Rendell | Fowey Festival Inspector Wexford | Cormorant Hotel Golant CornwallInternationally famous and prolific author Ruth Rendell is the star attraction at the Fowey Festival of Words and Music today.

The star novelist is set to hold an hour long talk at St Fimbarrus Church this evening as part of the festival, which was originally known as the Du Maurier festival, after famous Cornish novelist and author of Jamaica Inn Daphne Du Maurier.



Ruth has just released the 24th novel in her critically acclaimed Inspector Wexford series, No Man's Nightingale, and the talk is set to centre around this latest release.

Award winning Ruth has no penned more than 50 novels and was first published in 1964, when her debut novel From Doon With Death was released.

In 1996 Ruth was awarded a CBE and in 1997 became a Life Peer to the House of Lords.

Those topics will be touched on in this talk, which is set to be hosted by the Sunday Times' chief fiction reviewer Peter Kemp. He'll be asking Ruth all about her life as a writer and how she's worked her way through the 50 years since the creation of Inspector Wexford, the character for whom she is most famous.

Today marks the penultimate day of the week-long festival, which many people staying at hotels in Cornwall with indoor swimming pool have visited.
