Death Among the Olives
Three middle-aged, gay men – each with their reasons for starting over – share a house in a small, rural town in Andalucia.
Learning to adjust and adapt to new housemates is a hard trick for these old dogs to learn, and things do not go smoothly, but a sensational murder in their adopted town soon brings them together.
The death of a migrant worker in the olive fields has the whole town on tenterhooks, and our three heroes become consumed with the desire to solve the mystery.
“Death Among the Olives,” is a comic and colourful book set in a picturesque region of Southern Spain, renowned for its landscapes of undulating olive groves and medieval castles.

Born to Dutch parents and raised in Colombia and England, I am a rootless wanderer with itchy feet. I've spent the last few years living and working in The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Sudan and Bulgaria, but I have every confidence that I will now finally be able to settle down among the olive groves of Andalucia.
I am an avid reader and film fan (in fact, my study is overflowing with my various dvd collections!)
I did an MA in creative writing for film and television at the University of Sheffield. After a failed attempt at making a career as a screenwriter, I turned to the theater and wrote and produced a play called ´Death Takes a Lover´ (which has since been turned into the first D.S.Billings Victorian Mystery). The play was performed on the London Fringe to great critical acclaim.
I am currently living in Spain where I make ends meet by teaching English .
