My first crime fiction book, Every Reason, is available on Amazon.
The second, Whatever It Takes, is published in December 2020 by Matador. And I am now about half way through the third in the series.
I have a podcast in which I read some of the short stories I have written... You can find it at kevhwilson.podbean.com
I am working with an illustrator with a view to publishing new short stories as a collection.
I have had several plays published, and performed at theatres across the South of England.

Whatever It Takes is a cleverly constructed crime novel with a strong female lead character. DCI Jane Birchfield tries to juggle her successful career, in what is still a male dominated profession, with that of a home life with a partner who feels he always takes second place.
The crime develops from what is thought initially to be a murder following a local online betting scam to something much more sordid and international.
This second novel by Heaton Wilson is on a par with crime fiction by more established authors of the genre. Due to strong descriptive language, the characters are realistic and brought to life with the reader feeling they know them well.
An excellent read and highly recommended.

Born in Stalybridge, near Manchester, I trained as a journalist. It was the best decision I ever made, because it not only gave me the confidence to deal with people (many of them difficult!), but it also enabled me to earn a living from doing what I have always enjoyed - writing.
I worked in Stockport, Bolton, and Bury, before moving to Herefordshire; at which point I swapped sides and moved into public relations, working in Southamptonl, Harrow, and Barnet.
My big career change came when I set myself up as a consultant, living on the Isle of Wight, where we used to come for family holidays, but working at various locations in the UK.
I gradually eased out of full time work, and founded Origins Theatre; writing our plays, and often appearing in them!
The writing bug has never left me, and after graduating with a BA Hons in Literature through the Open University, I began to explore writing fiction, including short stories.
I wrote my first crime fiction novel about three years ago. It's called Every Reason. My new book - Whatever It Takes - is the second in the series. And I am now writing the third.
