Chris Crowther

Chris Crowther spent 42 years flying a variety of aeroplanes and helicopters around the world. It was in West Africa that he renewed his love of writing, spending spare hours on helidecks out in the South Atlantic, penning articles and short stories for magazines and periodicals and, at the same time, working on his first full-length novel, BLADESTRIKE, a thriller eventually published in the U.S.

In 2002, he retired from flying and, for five years, skippered passenger boats on the Norfolk Broads, the setting for the “Jack Fellows” series of whodunnits.  Now fully-retired except for his writing, Chris spends as much time as possible sailing the rivers and coast with his wife, Sue. Always pleased to hear from readers, he can be contacted here: Contact the Author.

In a change from Chris’s Norfolk Broads books,  PURSUIT draws on his flying career, having started out on open-cockpit biplanes and flown helicopters overseas with an American expatriate outfit.  The story is set in WW1 where his father was one of the last survivors of the conflict and his front-line memories were another valuable asset to the content.

But Chris’s latest book is back with Jack Fellows solving mysteries on the Broads in Backwaters.  Hear him talking about it in this video:
