P.F. Ford, is the author of the Dave Slater Mystery Novel series, a classic British blend of character, mystery and suspense. If you like your crime with a lighter touch, here's an author who writes a refreshing, entertaining mix of mystery and humour that never takes itself too seriously.
Having spent most of his life trying to be the person everyone else wanted him to be, P.F. (Peter) Ford was a late starter when it came to writing. Having tried many years ago (before the advent of self-published ebooks) and been turned down by every publisher he approached, it was a case of being told ‘now will you accept you can’t write and get back to work’.
But then a few years ago, having been unhappy for over 50 years of his life, Peter decided he had no intention of carrying on that way. Fast forward a few years and you find a man transformed. Having found a partner (now wife) who believes dreamers should be encouraged and not denied, he first wrote (under the name Peter Ford) and published some short reports and a couple of books about the life changing benefits of positive thinking.
Now, happily settled in Wales, and no longer constrained by the idea of having to keep everyone else happy, Peter is blissfully happy being himself, sharing his life with wife Mary and their three dogs, and living his dream writing fiction.

In book two of the Dave Slater Mystery series, the sleepy town of Tinton is shocked at the discovery of three bodies in one day. One is a recent murder victim, the others are fifteen-year old skeletons, both victims of an axe murder. When evidence emerges the three are related, it seems there’s no such thing as just a coincidence.
