About Keith Dixon

A few years ago I realised that I wanted to give up work and write fiction full time.

So since then I’ve written six novels featuring private eye Sam Dyke and published a non-crime book, Actress. I’ve also given up work.

The sixth Sam Dyke Investigation, The Secret Sharers, was published in May, 2015 and the next in the series will be published late in 2015.

I’m currently sharing my time between the UK and France.
