Jason Dean was born in South London and grew up in the south-east of England. After finishing art college, he spent many years as a graphic designer before deciding what he really wanted to do was write the kind of American-based thrillers he's always loved reading. So over the course of a year Jason spent his days working at his regular job, while his evenings and weekends were spent plotting and writing his first novel. 'The Wrong Man', published by Headline, was the result. Since then he has had three more novels and a number of short stories published, all featuring his James Bishop character.
He now lives in the Far East with his wife and his dog, occasionally making trips to England or the States whenever the need arises. He is currently at work on the next James Bishop novel.
