A Life for a Life - Tim Ellis

Bio: Tim Ellis was born in the bowels of Hammersmith Hospital, London, on a dark and stormy night, grew up in Cheadle, Cheshire, and now lives in Essex with his wife and five Shitzus. In-between, he joined the Royal Army Medical Corps at eighteen and completed twenty-two years service, leaving in 1993 having achieved the rank of Warrant Officer Class 1 (Regimental Sergeant Major). Since then he has worked in secondary education as a senior financial manager, in higher education as an associate lecturer/tutor at Lincoln and Anglia Ruskin Universities, and as a consultant for the National College of School Leadership. His final job, before retiring in 2009, was as Head and teacher of Behavioural Sciences (Psychology/Sociology) in a secondary school. He has a PhD and an MBA in Educational Management, and an MA in Education.

Product description: A Life for a Life: People are being murdered in Chigwell, Essex.The killer is leaving numbered tokens in the victim’s mouths. DI Jed Parish and PC Mary Richards must gain access to the abandoned Beech Tree Orphanage if they are to find out the truth behind the murders.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book? It's a police procedural about a serial killer with a twist at the end.

Q: Why did you go indie? Why wait 6 - 8+ weeks for an agent to decide whether to represent you, and then if you're accepted - another 18+ months before you're published! The publishing industry is too cumbersome now.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre? Henning Mankell, Steig Larsson,
