Despite two national newspaper reports to the contrary, Kerry Wilkinson is male. Honestly.
His debut, LOCKED IN, the first in the detective Jessica Daniel series, is a UK no.1 Kindle bestseller, with the first three Jessica Daniel books making him Amazon UK's top-selling author for the final quarter of 2011.
THINK OF THE CHILDREN outsold Dan Brown to become Amazon UK's no.1 Kindle pre-order. Kerry is the first formerly self-published British author to have an ebook no.1 and reach the top 20 of the UK paperback chart.
Since then, the Jessica Daniel series has continued with PLAYING WITH FIRE, THICKER THAN WATER, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, CROSSING THE LINE and SCARRED FOR LIFE.
A spin-off from PLAYING WITH FIRE - the Andrew Hunter series - started with SOMETHING WICKED in 2014. The follow-up, SOMETHING HIDDEN, will be released in 2016.
A standalone crime novel, DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN, set in the same world as Jessica and Andrew, will be released in October 2015.
Pan Macmillan - Griffin in the US - are also publishing Kerry's young adult/fantasy/adventure series - the Silver Blackthorn trilogy. The first book, RECKONING, was released in 2014, with RENEGADE following in 2015 and RESURGENCE in 2016.
He is an occasional sports journalist and can frequently be spotted cycling the hills of Lancashire. He was born in Somerset but now lives in the north west.
