I'm a Scottish person, edging ever closer to a significant birthday. I'm married with one daughter and currently reside in Dunblane, Scotland.

I've written six novels, so far: mostly crime fiction. The DI Adam Stark series has three books out now and a fourth under construction. There are a couple of standalone crime novels and a post-apocalyptic, Scottish horror. They should all be listed below. My main literary influences are Irvine Welsh, Chris Brookmyre and Stephen King. As a result, my stuff is often dark, violent, and peppered with profanity, but there's a lot of humour too.

You can get an exclusive FREE short story http://petercarrollemailsign-up.gr8.com/ when you sign up for my newsletter.

I've been struggling with my latest book for about a year now and progress has been painfully slow. I'm up to about 32k words but consistently failing to break through and get it flowing. I try not to get too uptight about it and, when the dam breaks, I'll be ready. (less)

I read almost 30 books in 2016, which is the most for a long time. A lot were decent but unremarkable, a few were pants. These five stood out.

1. Life Or Death – Michael Robotham

I’ve read a lot of thrillers over the past couple of years. Very few of them have been complete duds, but I could say the same about the number that have really grabbed me and stood out from the crowd. This book is one o... Read more of this blog post »
