AUTHOR BIO

Colin was born in Darley Dale a small village in the Derbyshire Peak District. During travelling for work all over the world he decided to use the time spent in hotel rooms on a passion for writing that he had held for many years.

I have four beautiful children and consider myself so very lucky to live in the area I write about.

The character of John Gammon a Peak District Detective was born in 2013 when I started writing my first book "Things Will Never Be the same again"

 

The beautiful Peak District is used for these crime fiction stories. Many characters and places you may well associate with the area. I must stress that all my writings are purely fictitious and do not represent or imply anything other than my imagination in the places or people included in the books.

WALK THE PEAKS

Whether local to the area or visiting this wonderful part of the world for the weekend or a holiday, we highly recommend taking a look at Walk the Peak District website and a chance to enjoy the countryside on foot which John Gammon often describes.


There are lots of beautiful and easy walks along the eastern edges and the various Dales in the Peak District but the walks included in this website are more varied and are a slightly more demanding undertaking. With a wonderfully simple website to browse, it features over 50 great walks from which to choose, ranging between 1.5 and 3 hours.

 
 

THE PEAK DISTRICT

Founded in 1951, the Peak District National Park is the first of Britain’s 15 national parks. With its breath-taking views, unique locations and wonderful residents, it makes for the perfect setting for many of Colin’s books.

 

Reaching into five counties: Derbyshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire, Yorkshire, Greater Manchester, it is visited by more than 10 million visitors a year and as such one of the most popular national parks in the UK. The impressive gritstone edges of the Dark Peak, wonderfully contrast to the steep limestone dales in the White Peak and offer limitless settings for fictitious foul play, alongside the abundance of caves, crags and open moorland.

 

Prior to the detective work of John Gammon, his ‘patch’ was previously made famous on the small screen by Peak Practice – a British drama series about a GP surgery which ran from 1993 until 2002, whilst other locations have provided the backdrop for many Hollywood films including Chatsworth (Pride and Prejudice), Haddon Hall (Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth, Henry VIII, Moll Flanders), Lyme Hall (Pride and Prejudice), North Lees Hall (Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, The Other Boleyn Girl).


Just one fact to end on - The name ‘Peak’ does not relate to mountains (there are none) – it is thought to derive from the Pecsaetan, an Anglo-Saxon tribe who settled the area.
