Martin Peter Kielty writes more than 3000 stories a year as a news journalist for the UK’s leading music magazine group. He has previously had ten books published, covering popular culture and politics ~ but Simon The Fox is his first novel.

From the early 1990s until the middle of the last decade he was a leading production journalist who contributed to most of Scotland’s national newspapers ~ before changing careers to become a manager of rock bands, where he saw first-hand some of the larger-than-life characters who live amongst us every day.

After a brief stint at being a professional musician himself, he returned to the world of writing. His first work of fiction was Old The Front Page, a book which envisages how tabloid newspapers might have dealt with big stories in Scottish history over the past 2000 years. The success of mixing literary genres was the inspiration for Simon The Fox ~ and more novels are planned.

Martin is 42, married, and lives near the centre of Glasgow with two cats and a nearly-finished campervan. Find out more.
