David Robinson is a Yorkshireman taking his life in his hands by living amongst Lancastrians on the outskirts of Manchester. Driven by a huge, cynical sense of humour, he’s been a writer for over thirty years having begun with magazine articles before moving on to novels and TV scripts.

He has worked closely with Crooked Cat Books since 2012, when The Filey Connection, the very first Sanford 3rd Age Club Mystery, was published. There are now 14 STAC Mysteries with more to come in the near future.

Describing himself as the Doyen of Domestic Disasters he can be found blogging at and he appears frequently on video (written, produced and starring himself) dispensing his mocking humour at
