In a crowded crime fiction market, it’s difficult to find something original and fresh.
But if you enjoy a traditional whodunit with an absorbing plot and characters, the Kent Fisher murder mystery novels may be just what you’re looking for.
Inspired by a love of cosy murder mysteries from authors like Agatha Christie, Elly Griffiths, Colin Dexter, Peter James, LJ Ross and Sue Grafton, I took my extensive experience as an environmental health officer to create a different kind of detective.
Only Kent Fisher’s not a detective – he’s an environmental health officer who uncovers a murder only he can solve.
This fresh approach to the murder mystery adds a contemporary and often irreverent twist to the traditional whodunit, offering readers something familiar but different.
The News page will keep you up to date, including the publication of the Kent Fisher #4, No More Lies. My Robservations blog also provides more details about life as a crime writer and events in Crouch Corner.
You may also come across my West Highland white terrier, Harvey, who features as Columbo in the Kent Fisher murder mysteries.
When he’s not watching me write, he likes to join me on the beautiful South Downs to research settings for the latest book.
When No Accident was released in 2016, Crime Fiction Lover said,
“Expect sharp dialogue and irreverent humour in this whodunit, which manages to pay homage to the traditional murder mystery, while striking a contemporary and irreverent note.”
