Police officer turned crime writer Michael Fowler is set to give a talk at Hucknall Library on Tuesday 4th August from 2pm to 3pm.
He retired from the police 2006 after 32 years service with a ‘folder full of rich crime material to draw upon’ and began writing.
He said: “The first draft was completed within 18 months. Then I spent another year tightening the prose and in 2010 I began submitting the manuscript. After only a few rejections I was offered a contract by Caffeine Nights Publishing Limited and in 2012 ‘Heart of the Demon’ was released, together with the follow-up novel, ‘Cold Death’.”
Mr Fowler says he has ‘fought with drunks, wrestled thieves to the ground, almost been stabbed by a knife wielding burglar on the run and has experienced the adrenalin rush from many a high speed chase’.
