D.R. Bailey was raised in a family of bibliophiles. From an early age he developed eclectic tastes in fiction including; SciFi, Romance, Crime, and the Classics. Some of his favourite authors remain Gerald Durrell, Jane Austen, Peter James, Ellis Peters, and Isaac Asimov. At the age of eleven he wrote his first fictional story about his toy teddy bear clan. Since then he has gone on to have some of his non-fiction article published in magazines and also a fictional crime series. He has engaged in several different careers and says that these life experiences have all contributed greatly to his penchant for storytelling.
Bailey has now penned two full length crime novels, which is a genre he is particularly fond of. We are delighted to publish The Confessional Killings and its sequel The Deathbed Confession containing a heady mix of crime, suspense, humour, romance and sex. Bailey has also tackled some controversial and topical subjects surrounding the Catholic Church in these stories. The stories are set in Ireland, and Bailey confesses to having a great affection for the Irish. When asked why he started writing the books, Bailey said these were stories which needed to be told and ones he would want to read himself. We are happy to have D.R. Bailey in our stable and look forward to publishing further volumes of DI Gallway Investigates.
