John Niven is a Scottish author and screenwriter.

Born in Irvine, Ayrshire, Niven read English literature at the University of Glasgow, graduating in 1991 with First Class honours.

For the next ten years, he worked for a variety of record companies, including London Records and Independiente. He left the music industry in 2002 to write full-time and published his debut novella Music from Big Pink in 2005. Niven's breakthrough novel Kill Your Friends is a satire of the music business, based on his career in A&R, during which he passed up the chance to sign Coldplay and Muse. Niven has since published The Amateurs, The Second Coming, Cold Hands, Straight White Male and No Good Deed.

His book, The Sunshine Cruise Company, is currently being developed as a feature film by the producers of Silver Linings Playbook and Shakespeare in Love.

David F. Ross was born in Glasgow and has lived in Kilmarnock for over 30 years. His debut novel The Last Days of Disco was shortlisted for the Authors' Club Best First Novel Award.

*A £1.50 fee will apply to all card transactions online and at Box Office.
