“I am but mad North-North-West. When the wind is southerly, I know a hawk from a handsaw.” – Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

My name is Philip Damian Shepherd and this is my efforts to publish fiction that will accompany my factual published papers on magneto-dielectric materials in various journals and conferences around the world. I’m an electronic engineer and a writer. I love physics, maths and chemistry as I had to learn chemistry it in order to complete my PhD.

Crime fiction has always been my favourite genre in books, movies and television series. I started out in the 1980s with Magnum P.I. and Columbo. Along came Agatha Christie novels joining the beloved books from Douglas Adams. Raymond Chandler‘s books about a private investigator Philip Marlowe in the late 1930s and early 1940s got me hooked.

I aim to blog the progress I make in writing novels in a series and getting them published. Whilst noting the difficulties and highlighting how I overcome them. I intend to leave help here to anyone else that wishes to write crime fiction. My Blogs can be found in the menu above.
