I write the kind of books I love to read.
Books ranging from the classic whodunit by authors like Agatha Christie, the feisty private eye novels of Sue Grafton, thrillers by Dick Francis, and the modern crime fiction of Peter James.
I also wanted Kent Fisher to be an ordinary person like me, drawn into solving a murder. He’s the underdog battling against superior forces and minds, seeking justice and fair play in a cruel world.
These are the values and motivations that drive us both. But Kent Fisher leads a much more colourful and exciting life.
After a long career as an environmental health officer, I now write full time from my home in East Sussex. You can often find me walking on the South Downs with my West Highland white terrier, Harvey, researching the settings. The peace and beauty of these rolling hills and sheer white cliffs always inspire me, filling me with ideas for future Kent Fisher mysteries.
‘Robert Crouch is fast becoming a favourite author.’
