No ordinary murder mysteries.

if you enjoy a traditional murder mystery but want something fresh and exciting …

the Kent Fisher Mysteries may be just what you’re looking for.

With their complex plots, entertaining characters and irreverent humour, the Kent Fisher mysteries offer an exciting alternative to current crime fiction.

Please take a look around the site to learn more about environmental health officer, Kent Fisher, who solves murders in and around the beautiful South Downs in the south of England.

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.

My blog, Robservations, offers regular musings on writing, being an author and the background to the Kent Fisher novels. You’ll also find 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.

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

Amazon review 17th November 2016

‘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.
Nothing happens by accident…

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.
