Paul Gitsham

Sub-genre: , ,

Paul Gitsham started his career as a biologist: after gaining a PhD in molecular biology, he worked in laboratories in Manchester and Toronto, before retraining as a science teacher. Along the way he had spells as the world’s most over-qualified receptionist and spent time working for a major UK bank, ensuring that terrorists, foreign dictators and other international ne’er do wells hadn’t embarrassed the institution by managing to deposit their ill-gotten gains in a Children’s Trust Fund.

Paul’s final school reports from primary school said that he would never achieve anything if his handwriting didn’t improve; a somewhat kinder note urged him to become the next Roald Dahl. If anything, his handwriting has got worse and, unless Mr Dahl also wrote police procedurals under a pseudonym, he has failed on both counts.

Paul is the author of the DCI Warren Jones series. The first three full-length novels, The Last Straw, No Smoke without Fire and Silent as the Grave have all been Amazon bestsellers. A shorter novella, Blood is Thicker than Water also contains a preview of Silent as the Grave.

May 2018 sees the release of the latest novella A Case Gone Cold, which also includes a preview of September’s full-length novel, The Common Enemy.
