Russ Thomas's picture

Russ Thomas

UK flag

Russ Thomas was born in Essex, raised in Berkshire and now lives in Sheffield. He grew up in the 80s reading anything he could get from the library, writing stories, watching large amounts of television, playing videogames, and largely avoiding the great outdoors. He spent five years trying to master playing the electronic organ and another five trying to learn Spanish. It didn't take him too long to realise that he'd be better off sticking to the writing. After a few 'proper' jobs (among them: pot-washer, optician's receptionist, supermarket warehouse operative, call-centre telephonist and storage salesman) he discovered the joys of bookselling, where he could talk to people about books all day. ​ His debut novel Firewatching is the first book in the D/S Adam Tyler series.

John Barlow
"Joe Romano is a modern take on the classic police procedural detective… Welcome to the mean streets of Leeds… the best and worst that Yorkshire has to offer."

D L Marshall
"Marshall has an obvious talent for storytelling."
Tell Me Your Lies (2022)
Kate Ruby
"What a deliciously dark domestic horror this is, as it picks away at the damage family members do to each other in the name of love . . . Such a clever, nuanced story of revenge, self-destruction, and everyday cruelty."
