Profile: Keith Marshall

About This Author

My name's Keith Marshall. I'm retired now, in the past I've worked as a chef and taught professional cookery in a technical college. I have a Honours degree in Field biology and habitat management and a Master's degree in restoration ecology from the University of Liverpool. I have been interested in writing for some time now, I began writing travelogues to accompany my photographs taken during my travels round the world with my wife. One of my long-term interests has been natural history and at some stage I got interested in Orchids. I built a large greenhouse and continued to develop this interest over twenty odd years. During this time I had a book published on how to grow these wonderful plants. 'ORCHIDS - a guide to cultivation.' My interest now is fiction, particularly crime. My character is a guy called Rufus Tremayne, he's a detective inspector working in the northwest of England. The area where I was born and grew up. It is a coastal region, the city of Liverpool to the south, the city of Preston to the north and to our backs is the spine of England the Pennines. I have used the coast with it's sand dunes and the life of the city in my first novel - OUT OF THE DUNES' A second novel featuring the same characters begins with a scene on the wide sandy beach.
