Hello, my name is Jack Lockwood. I am a BIA, a kind of criminal profiler who sometimes helps police on major inquiries. I also write books about true crime. My work takes me into some unexpected places, I meet some strange people and have a few adventures along the way. I’ve written a couple of novels about what has happened to me, but in this blog I would like to share a few of the more interesting things that have happened in my life.
I live in the Gatehouse to a (now demolished) mansion, near to Canterbury, a beautiful historic cathedral city in Kent, England. I converted the old building to a home myself, because in the past I learned various building trades, and still enjoy building and DIY, what Americans call remodelling houses.
I love mysteries, I love animals, and I always like to help people if I can. Unfortunately I also run up against the occasional bad guy, but I have my own ways of dealing with them.
(By the way, the picture is of the Sun Inn, a beautiful old Inn in the centre of Canterbury itself, not far from the cathedral.)

And Geoffrey West has written three novels about some big mysteries I was involved in. One where I got involved in a thirty year old mystery connected with John Lennon’s death, Rock’n’Roll Suicide, and another where I fell in love with a girl who I thought might be a killer, Doppelganger. The most recent one is Sheer Fear, where Jack’s brother gets involved in a cover-up of influential people involved in historic child abuse. A book of short stories, taken from some of the posts which have been on this site, is being published right now
