Meet the Author

Hello and welcome to my author page.I am the author of three titles in the Romney and Marsh Files series of British police procedural novels and two books in the Acer Sansom series of thrillers.My venture into self-publishing began in December, 2012, with the self-publication of the first of the Romney and Marsh Files. These don't have to be read in order, but, like consuming the many and varied courses of a good lunch, it is best if you do (Rope Enough, Making a Killing and Joint Enterprise). In September, 2013, my Acer Sansom books became available for download (Dirty Business and Loose Ends). These are different stories in a different genre, and while each is a stand-alone novel they really should be read in order.If you do read any of my books, I would appreciate you taking the time to comment with your thoughts. As a self-published author it appears that reader-feedback is vitally important in furthering interest for other readers. I am also happy to receive feedback at my blog: olivertidy.wordpress.com.If you have an inclination to learn more about me or my writing, I blog at the address mentioned above. Here you will also find a comments page for the Romney and Marsh Files and one for the Acer Sansom books.My books are written in British English.I look forward to hearing from you.

    Great read! I was pleasantly surprised by this book.  The story

    Great read! I was pleasantly surprised by this book.  The story moved along, the pieces fit together, and although I figured out the suspect, there was still enough twists and turns to keep me going until the end.   Looking forward to books two and three and possibly more.

    A Good Read

    This is a great detective story. The British team of Romney and Marsh make an engaging crime fighting duo based in Dover, England. There were a few editorial errors therefore the four stars.

    Character development was good. The crusty veteran cop, Romney and the youngish female Marsh.

    Anxious to read the author's other works.

    First of (Hopefully) Many

    An interesting pair of sleuths, in a very intricate plot that is well-developed and spell-binding. The story keeps you intrigued, as does the development of each character in the book. I look forward to reading of further exploits of Detective Inspector Romney (no relation to Mitt, I take it?) and Sergeant Marsh.

    Great book!

    I love English mysteries and this one did not disappoint. Good characters and story line. I've got the next two and also enjoyed them. The characters develop nicely through the series. More please!

    Decent story

    This was a pretty decent story, however it was written by someone from the UK so there was a bit of a difference for me in understanding the terms used. But otherwise it was a pretty good story.

    All right

    I was enjoying this book and the characters until I read 'Romney's' opinion of aging women. I put the book down for a couple of days and surprised even myself to finish it. I thought the author was insultive for no apparent reason or connection to his story, it served no purpose what so ever other than to alienate women 40 and over. I did like the cover, and had I judged this book by it's cover, I would have rated it much higher!

    Liked it a whole lot!

    Nice to find how other-than-American detectives go about their business. The plot got a bit thin at the end, but the characters held my attention.

    Depressing and ugly

    Horribly depressing and ugly, it reminds us that England and its culture and society have long become a dystopia.

    A well crafted story

    The characters are believable and I was impressed the author did everything himself--good job! Looking forward to the next book in the series.
