About The Author...

indie author

Huw Collingbourne

      

Huw Collingbourne is a writer and software developer. He has also, at various times, been a magazine editor, TV presenter and horticulturist (he ran an exotic plant nursery). He has an MA in English and a 2nd dan black belt in Aikido - the latter skill useful when attempting to control his huge, hairy and amazingly strong Pyrenean Mountain Dogs.

In the 1980s he was a pop music journalist and he interviewed many of the 'New Romantic' stars such as Boy George, Adam Ant, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Depeche Mode. In the 1990s he published the 'adult humour' magazine, 18 Rated, which was immediately banned by all leading UK newsagents (who obviously failed to see the joke).

He is now writing a series of 'New Romantic Murder Mysteries' which brings to life the dazzling music and clubbing scene of London in the early '80s. 'Killers In Mascara' is the first novel in this series and is to be followed by 'The Glam Assassin'.
