My first crime fiction book, Every Reason, is available on Amazon.
The second, Whatever It Takes, will be published by Matador later this year.
I have launched a podcast in which I read some of the short stories I have written... You can find it here ....
kevhwilson.podbean.com I am now working with an illustrator with a view to publishing new short stories as a collection.
I have also had several plays published by Smithscripts.
Born in Stalybridge, near Manchester, I trained as a journalist in defiance of my parents, who wanted me to join the Civil Service. 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 for Southampton City Council, then Harrow, and also in Barnet.
My big career change came when I organised my own redundancy and set myself up as a consultant, living on the Isle of Wight, where we used to come for family holidays.
Since then, I have gradually eased out of communications consultancy, and ended up founding my own theatre company - Origins Theatre; writing our own 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 fictions novel about three years ago. It's called Every Reason, and at one point was in the top 100 on Amazon Kindle.
My new book - Whatever It Takes - is the second in the series.
And I am now researching the third.
When I'm not writing, I love working outdoors in our hilly garden near the sea, and walking the dogs.
It's a tough life, but someone's got to do it!
