Terry Newman


Terry Newman was a research lecturer, working on heart and lung function, who one day happened to find himself in the BBC’s Broadcasting House writing comedy. He is still rather vague about how this happened, but after he decided that writing was more fun than sitting at an electron microscope in the dark, he has gone on to write comedy and drama, with some success, for TV, film, radio, Internet, games and the stage.

His first novel Detective Strongoak and the Case of the Dead Elf which introduced the well-dressed, axe-wielding, Master Detective Nicely Strongoak was a #1 Kindle Epic Fantasy Bestseller. This new adventure takes us back to those ‘mean cobbled streets where a dwarf has to walk tall’.

Terry now works in a nice bright room with a view of the Sussex Weald, but he does sometimes still miss his microscope.
