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 seven novels, so far: mostly crime fiction. The DI Adam Stark series has four books out now and a fifth 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.

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)

The third DI Adam Stark novel was published in July 2015 and, almost as soon as I’d finished it, I was confident I had the plot and theme of the follow-up, Stark Reminders, pretty clear in my mind. I started writing it in about September 2015 and, at first, it all went fairly well. I wasn’t writing prolifically, but it was steady enough by my standards. Then, in summer 2016, I hit a bit of a br... Read more of this blog post »

This was my first Tammy Cohen book and I loved it. Clever, unusual writing, with a slowly unfurling plot, with reveal after surprising reveal until a nail-biting denouement.
