Neil McIntosh cut his writing teeth in the world of fantasy and science fiction, with a slew of short stories and a series of three Warhammer Fantasy novels for Games Workshop’s Black Library. A career step-across into mental health and criminal justice took his writing in new directions, sowing the seed for a planned series of psychological thrillers featuring forensic psychotherapist Joe Keegan. The first of those novels – Damascus – was shortlisted in 2019 for the Big Issue / Harper Collins crime writing prize.
Neil lives with his partner and resident cat on the south coast of England in Brighton. When not writing he spends time working with a local Health & Social Care watchdog, and being royally entertained by his grandson. Any hours left begging end up divided between travel, fretting over Chelsea’s latest loss, and riding bikes and motorbikes – although he wouldn’t claim to be much good with either.
