Policeman turned crime author Graham Pears will be reading from his novels at Hexham Library next month.
The former Chief Superintendent with Northumbria Police started writing as a diversion and has now dedicated himself to penning page turning crime fiction with a twist of humour.
His first novel, The Myth of Justice, was published in 2009 by Red Squirrel Press and introduced readers to Newcastle detective Francis Whittle, aka ‘Jet’. A Time For Justice is the second Jet novel. Graham is currently working on the third.
He will be reading from his first two books on November 9 between 7pm-8.30pm.
Graham, who was born in Wallsend, North Tyneside, and now lives in Stocksfield, Northumberland, joined the police cadets in 1974 and retired in 2007.
While in the middle of a busy career he took an arts degree following on with an MA in creative writing. Although he had originally started work on his first degree to give him a break from police work, it seemed natural for him to write about crime.
