Jeremy is a journalist and author. Born and raised in Kendal in the Lake District, he worked for more than 20 years on newspapers and magazines in the north west of England. One of the biggest stories he covered was the Lady in the Lake murder case in 1997. He now teaches multimedia journalism at Manchester Metropolitan University, and lives in Cheshire with his wife and two children.
The Jigsaw Murders: The True Story of the Ruxton Killings and the Birth of Modern Forensics is his first book. It is a case that has haunted him since childhood as he used to live near the murder scene. He is now writing his second book, about the life and killing of fashion king Ossie Clark.
I’ll be talking to Jeremy about The Jigsaw Murders, true crime, and his writing in general. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
