Bill Kirton


I’ve been a university lecturer, actor, director, TV presenter and held Writing Fellowships at three Scottish universities. My crime novels are set in Scotland. So far, there are four in my police procedural series: Material Evidence, Rough Justice, The Darkness and Shadow Selves. The fifth, Unsafe Acts, will be published early in 2012. The Figurehead (2011) is a crime/romance story set in 1840 and The Sparrow Conundrum (2011) is a crime spoof. It was the winner of the 2011 Forward National Literature Awards’ ‘Humor’ category. The Darkness came second in the ‘Mystery’ category.
I've written and performed skits and songs at the Edinburgh Festival. Three of my short stories have appeared in the CWA’s annual anthologies and one was chosen for 2010’s Book of Best British Mysteries. My radio and stage plays have been produced in three countries and I’ve written a prize-winning verse translation of Molière’s Sganarelle. I co-authored Just Write and, for Pearson Education, I’ve written Brilliant Study Skills, Brilliant Essay, Brilliant Dissertation and Brilliant Workplace Skills.
Under the name Jack Rosse, I wrote The Loch Ewe Mystery, a novel for children which was published in 2011.
