Chris Whitaker was born in London and spent ten years working there as a financial trader. He has now left his job to write full-time (with a bit of trading on the side).
His first novel, Tall Oaks is a humorous crime novel, and from interviews, the humour reflects Whitaker’s personality. The novel has won several awards and he has now released a second novel – All The Wicked Girls.
Whitaker lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and young sons.
