A portrait of Michael Jecks

Michael Jecks

The published author of over 40 novels, Michael Jecks has always been fascinated by history, but 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, 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 scatty Dalmatian, with whom he walks regularly looking for inspiration for his books.
