Nick Oldham was born in April 1956 in a house in the tiny village of Belthorn - mums were very hardy in those days - up on the moors high above Blackburn, Lancashire.After leaving college then spending a depressing year in a bank, he joined Lancashire Constabulary at the age of nineteen in 1975 and served in many operational postings around the county. Most of his service was spent in uniform, but the final ten years were spent as a trainer and a manager in police training. He retired in 2005 at the rank of inspector.
He lives with his wife, Belinda, on the outskirts of Preston.
Nick is the author of the popular 'Henry Christie' series of books.
