Chris Longmuir's headshot

I have been writing since 1990 and have had many short stories and articles published, as well as monologues and street theatre. More recently I have concentrated on novel writing, and am particularly interested in crime writing, contemporary and historical.

My awards include the Scottish Association of Writers Pitlochry Award for two books, Night Watcher and Dead Wood. Dead Wood subsequently went on to win the Dundee International Book Prize 2009 and was published by Polygon. Since then I have published the contemporary Dundee Crime Series. I have also published a historical crime series set during and after the First World War, The Kirsty Campbell Mysteries, featuring Dundee's first policewoman. As well as my crime novels, I have published a historical saga set in a Scottish fishing village in the 1830s, and The Nuts & Bolts of Self-Publishing: How to self-publish ebooks and paperbacks in an effort to share the vast experience I have acquired in the fields of publishing and self-publishing. I am currently working on another historical crime novel featuring Kirsty Campbell.
