The Crime Readers' Association

Robin Blake


I am author of eight Cragg & Fidelis historical mysteries, the latest being HUNGRY DEATH (Severn House 2022). All are set in mid-eighteenth century Lancashire.

I have been a professional writer since 1986 and am the author of more than twenty books. As well as novels and stories I have written quite a lot of non-fiction, particularly on the visual arts. I’ve been a regular contributor on the arts to the Financial Times and have written for many other journals and newspapers. Further information on me and details of my work can be seen on my website.

I write an occasional BLOG on all sorts of matters which interest me. This also appears on the website.
