John Caulfield was born in May 1964 in Cape Town, South Africa. He completed his schooling at the South African College School and went on to study at the University of Cape Town where he obtained a degree in English as well as a post graduate degree in Law.
In 1989, he was admitted as an Advocate of the Supreme Court of South Africa and, some years later, joined the Department of Justice where he prosecuted in a series of high profile criminal trials.
Since moving to the United Kingdom, he has written two crime novels, both influenced by his experiences as a criminal lawyer in Cape Town. His first novel, The Atom Heart Murders, won a number of accolades, including a joint first prize in the UK magazine, Writers’ Forum.
Apart from writing, he loves music, mountains and the sea.
