Kevin Turton was born in the South Yorkshire town of Rotherham and has been writing True Crime since the late 1990's. Fifteen books published to date. The last book, Britain's Unsolved Murders, hit the bookshelves just before the COVID outbreak and I am currently working on a new book for 2022. More details on my website www.kevinturtontruecrime.com. Writing short stories and fiction generally has always been an interest and one I have been able to indulge in more and more through lockdown. It's great to be able to release my more creative side occasionally and work outside the rigid structure imposed on those that work in the true crime arena.
