Robin is the author of around forty novels, many featuring the force of nature that is DS Lasser, the laconic, sometimes world-weary sergeant who patrols the streets of Wigan in the northwest of England.
He also writes in a number of genres, including hard-bitten and cosy crime, plus comedy, with a supernatural romance thrown into the mix.
After working at several jobs, including paint maker, pie salesman (a job that anyone from Wigan has to have done at some point) pallet maker, and eventually truck driver, he decided to try his hand at writing a book and so the first Lasser adventure saw the light of day.
He has been a full-time self-published author since two-thousand and thirteen and still finds it hard to fathom how he's got here.
When not tapping away at the keyboard, he likes to go for walks to solve plot problems and find new ways to bump people off.
