Love the middle-aged, morose, driven crime novel detective.

Love crime novels. Love the middle-aged, morose, driven crime novel detective. Here are just a few of my favourites in this category: Morse, Lewis, Bosch, Wallander, Rebus, Perez, DCI Banks,  Frost,  Foyle,  Cannon,  Montalbano,  Harry  Hole,  Jesse  Stone,  George  Gently, Longmire.

Readers keep sending more names. Add Vera (fits the bill despite being female) and Jack Irish.


My New Career? Ha!

My writing career began with humour. I wrote for 2 comedy shows in the eighties.

So this is a belated return to my ‘roots’. Although, as Dr Sibyl would say ‘That sounds rather vulgar, dear’.
