Malcolm Rose - Author

Until Easter 1996, Malcolm was a Lecturer in Chemistry at The Open University. He carried out research in analytical chemistry, particularly in the area of health, and taught mainly organic chemistry. However this left very little time for fiction writing, resulting in much of it being tackled after midnight. He is now a full-time writer.

A word from Malcolm:

I began writing stories while I was carrying out research at York for my DPhil degree in chemistry. Writing became a means of escape from everyday life. While I was at York, my then girlfriend (now wife) read my efforts and commented that I ought to try and get something published. I had never thought of writing as anything other than a hobby. Besides, as I thought then, a budding chemist couldn’t possibly be any good at it! Anyway, I joined a writers’ club to find out how to submit a manuscript to a publisher and, to cut a long story short, found a publisher in William Collins for my first novel, Rift.

I am now over half a century old, married to Barbara and have one son (Colin) who is an architect. I read all of my stories aloud to Barbara and Colin and they help me with their comments. My thirty books can be classed mainly as thrillers or crime and you’ll find a list of them – with descriptions – under ‘Books.’
