Hi! Below is a picture of the desk where I’ve written many of my books. To take this photo, I had to squeeze right up into one corner of my tiny office:
I’ve had a big tidy-up. Normally, my desk is piled high with all kinds of rubbish. Please ignore the half-eaten cheese sandwich.
Hi to everyone at Willenhall Primary and Whitmore Park Primary – I’m looking forward to meeting you all on Wednesday 15th October. I’ll be talking about detective stories and their history, and there’ll be books available to buy.
You can find my books at…
…most online booksellers, or at your nearest bookshop – if they haven’t got the title(s) you want on the shelf, just ask and they can order them for you.
Ebook editions are often cheaper than the printed versions, sometimes much cheaper. You can read ebooks on your phone or tablet, you don’t need an ereader.
When I last counted them up (Summer 2014) there had been 67 separate titles with my name on the cover, since my very first book appeared in 1997 (over 90 titles if you include various ebook editions and online stuff as well.) At a rough estimate, they total a little over 1,000,000 words. That’s more than Shakespeare, but far less than Dickens!
