Inspired by authors like Agatha Christie, Colin Dexter and Sue Grafton, I created environmental health officer, Kent Fisher, who investigates murders in and around the beautiful South Downs.

If you like your murder mysteries with complex plots, entertaining characters and a dash of humour, then Kent Fisher may be just what you’re looking for.

You can also find out more about me, my books and the values that inspired me to write a new kind of crime fiction.

One of these interests, photography, takes me up into the gentle, rolling landscapes of the South Downs. You can view photographs of the stunning landscapes and picturesque villages in Kent Fisher Country.

I also love reading and sharing my views on the books I enjoy, together with interviews of some of their authors.

My scrapbook contains details of the events, talks and interviews I’ve given. My blog, Robservations, offers regular musings on my life as an author and the collection of notebooks (currently 18) that keep me organised, when I can remember which one contains my To-Do list.

And I mustn’t forget Harvey, my gorgeous West Highland terrier, who stars as faithful friend and sidekick, Columbo, in the Kent Fisher mysteries.

No Accident, the first Kent Fisher mystery, was published in June 2016.

Bestselling author, Tamara McKinley said, ‘Agatha Christie fans will love it.’ 

‘This is an utterly enthralling first novel. The tension,
excitement and pace are brilliantly maintained until the final pages with twists and turns along the way.’

No Accident. No ordinary murder. No ordinary detective.

No Bodies, the second Kent Fisher mystery, is due for publication in 2017.

How do you find a killer if there are no clues, no connections and no bodies?

Fisher’s Fables – the perfect companion to the Kent Fisher mysteries.

Come and meet the characters from the mysteries in this companion book, based on the humorous blog that became a story in its own right.

Characters like personal assistant, Kelly, who gave up lap dancing so that she could sit on her own chair for a change. Or head of service, Danni, whose motivational pinboard always fails to inspire her dysfunctional team.

Fisher’s Fables. It started with a blog. It finished with a murder.
