About Jonathan Broughton

Jonathan lives on the south coast of England. Many of his short stories are inspired by the people who choose to live beside the sea. Mixed into this are elements of fantasy, occasionally horror.
The Russian White, his Victorian thriller, was written when he lived in London. On cold clear mornings, as the fog rises from the River Thames and seeps into the narrow alleys and shadowy by-ways, the city of over one hundred and fifty years ago can be glimpsed and the atmosphere evoked.
Running Before The Midnight Bell is an urban crime thriller. Hastings and St Leonards-on-Sea on the south coast of England are the backdrop to a series of murders targeted against vulnerable members of a particular community. Detective Chief Inspector Anthony Nemo struggles with the case as long-held secrets are slowly revealed: unaware that he too is being stalked by the killer.
