John Reid

Born in Dundee, Scotland, John Reid lived there with his wife Liz and their two sons before moving to Kent for work. After making several more moves around the south of England, the family eventually moved back north of the border, now splitting their time between Scotland and Portugal.

When he’s not typing with one finger, he can be found getting frustrated on the golf course, watching Formula 1, or spending time with friends and family.

I retired for the first time in 1995 to take on a consultancy designed to help new businesses become established, and in 2018 I finally retired from business life and had the opportunity to start writing the novel that I had carried around for over 40 years. That book was The Forgotten Gun, and I haven’t looked back since. The DCI Steve Burt series goes from strength to strength, and I am now on a second series with a new character.
