Best Selling Author
Following retirement, after thirty-two years as a police officer, working mainly as a detective, Michael returned to the deadly business of murder, as a writer. His past work brought him very close to some nasty characters, including psychopaths, and gruesome cases and he draws on that experience to craft his novels: There is nothing gentle about Michael’s stories.
His landmark novel ‘Heart of the Demon’, published in 2012, introduced Detective Sergeant Hunter Kerr. He has since written eight novels featuring him. He also released the first of his DS Scarlett Macey books in 2016.
He is also the author of a stand-alone crime novella ‘Chasing Ghosts’ and a true-crime thriller ‘Safecracker’.
Hunter Kerr’s first case is more deadly than he could have ever imagined…

– Michael Fowler
