Tony J Forder is a part-time IT consultant to education, is married and lives in Peterborough, UK.
Tony has been writing stories since childhood, but it was only when he won a short story competition judged by an editor from Pan Books, that he realised he might have what it takes to be a writer.
The story, Gino's Bar and Grille, went on to be published in Dark Voices 2, part of the celebrated Pan Book of Horror series. Three further short story sales followed: Book End, published in Dark Voices 4, Character Role, in FEAR magazine, and finally A Grim Story, which featured in A Rattler's Tale.
Degrees of Darkness, a psychological crime thriller, was Tony's first novel. Bad to the Bone is his second, and the first to feature DI James Bliss. Tony is currently working on two new novels – one of which will be the second in the DI Bliss series.
