Originally hailing from the north coast of Northern Ireland and now residing in South Manchester, Chris McDonald has always been a reader. At primary school, The Hardy Boys inspired his love of adventure, before his reading world was opened up by Chuck Palahniuk and the gritty world of crime.

He’s a fan of 5-a-side football, has an eclectic taste in music ranging from Damien Rice to Slayer and loves dogs.

He has signed a two book deal with Red Dog Press. His debut novel, A Wash of Black, will be released on 4th February 2020. Whispers In The Dark will follow and will be the first two in a hopefully long-running series of DI Erika Piper thrillers.
