Meet the Author

A former local authority accountant, property manager and puzzle compiler, Steve Dockray wrote three novels in the 1990s. Drawing on his experiences in the world of finance, the books were supposed to be serious, but the humour kept creeping in.


Despite some very favourable comments from publishers (“Enjoyed “The Borough”. If it was by Dick Francis they'd publish it tomorrow and not change a word”, one agent told him), he could not get the books into print.


The era of internet publishing and e-readers brings new possibilities.


Steve lives in South Devon with his wife.
