‘Robert Crouch is fast becoming a favourite author.’

Before I wrote full time, I worked as an environmental health officer, focusing mainly on food hygiene inspections and health and safety in the workplace. My experiences, particularly the investigation of fatal workplace accidents, inspired me to create the Kent Fisher mysteries, and bring something fresh and original to the crime fiction market.

Influenced by authors like Peter James, Sue Grafton, Dick Francis and Agatha Christie, I wanted to write crime fiction that would entertain and intrigue the whole family. And as an avid reader, I’ve also drawn inspiration from authors like LJ Ross, Rachel Amphlett and Robin Roughley.

I live on the East Sussex coast of England and like nothing better than to make the short journey to the gentle hills and picturesque villages of the South Downs, which provide the settings for the Kent Fisher mysteries. I love to explore the Downs with my West Highland White Terrier, Harvey, looking for inspiration and plots for future mysteries.

Like me, Kent Fisher’s a passionate environmentalist and animal lover with a keen sense of fair play and justice.
