I’ve always loved puzzles and mysteries – the more complex and baffling they are, the more I enjoy them. That’s why I love Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries. Miss Marple inspired me to create my own sleuth.
But I didn’t want yet another world weary detective with a traumatic past. I wanted someone for today’s world. Someone who shared my sense of justice and fair play, my desire to protect the environment and wildlife.
I’m not sure why it took me so long to see what was staring me in the face. I could use my forty years in environmental health to create a different kind of detective.
That’s why I created environmental health officer turned sleuth, Kent Fisher, and gave him the most baffling murders to solve.
I’m now fortunate enough to write full time from my home on the south coast of East Sussex. With the stunning South Downs and its picturesque villages nearby, I’m rarely short of inspiration.
