Michael Jecks

Portrait of Michael Jecks

The published author of over forty-five novels, although Michael Jecks has always been fascinated by history, it was only after a career change that he was able to indulge his interests full time. A hugely respected historical mystery specialist, he has been the Organiser of the Crime Writers’ Association’s Debut Dagger, Chair of the CWA and the founder of Medieval Murderers, as well as a judge for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger.

Michael and his family live in a small village in northern Dartmoor with their far-too-bright-for-her-own-good Rhodesian Ridgeback, with whom he walks regularly seeking inspiration for his books on the moors.
