About Keith Dixon

Keith Dixon has worked in education and business but has always managed to include some element of creative writing in what he does.

Ten years ago he had a revelation and realised that what he actually wanted to spend time doing was writing fiction. He had written seven novels in two years at the age of twenty, all of which were later lost in a cellar flood (the joys of paper back-up), and had won a playwriting competition with a play on the life of Isaac Newton.

But he realised that having spent many years reading and teaching 'proper' literature, he spent most of his time absorbed in American crime fiction. And it seemed to him as good as most of the contemporary, non-crime literature that he had been reading. So he decided to transplant the 'feel' of the American noir novel into a British environment to see what it looked like. It looked good.

So in those ten years he's written three novels featuring private eye Sam Dyke and is shortly to publish his fourth - non-crime - book, Actress.
