Fans of America's best-selling crime writer Patricia Cornwell will get a rare opportunity to hear the author talk about her work when she visits the University of East Anglia (UEA) later this month.

In her only public speaking appearance during her UK trip, Ms Cornwell will talk about her new book The Scarpetta Factor and 20 years of writing about its heroine, forensic pathologist Dr Kay Scarpetta.

The charity event on October 28 marks the 20th anniversary of the Arthur Miller Centre for American Studies at UEA. Proceeds from ticket sales for the event will go to Macmillan Cancer Support and the Hamlet Centre in Norwich.

Cornwell's work has been translated into 36 languages across more than 50 countries and she is regarded as one of the major international best-selling authors. Prof Chris Bigsby, founder and director of the Arthur Miller Centre, said: 'Visit any bookshop in the world and you will find Patricia Cornwell's novels. For readers of crime fiction she is a key figure and we jumped at the chance to bring her to the University of East Anglia.'

Patricia Cornwell will be appearing at 7pm on October 28, in Lecture Theatre 1 at UEA.

Tickets priced �6 are available from the UEA Box Office on 01603 508050 or visit www.ueaticketbookings.co.uk.
