Simon Toyne is the bestselling author of the Sanctus trilogy (HarperCollins) - Sanctus, The Key, and The Tower and now the Solomon Creed series (HarperCollins).
He wrote his first novel, Sanctus, after quitting his job as a TV executive to focus on writing. It became the biggest selling debut thriller of 2011 in the UK and an international bestseller. His books have been translated into 27 languages and published in over 50 countries.
Solomon Creed is the first in an electrifying five-part action-thriller series. This epic tale will span the world and centre around the enigmatic Solomon Creed: a man with no past and no memories on a journey of redemption. The Boy Who Saw sees Solomon hunted across France, on a journey that will take him into the heart of Europe’s violent past. The prequel to this brilliant tale is Broken Promise, Simon's most recent novella.
Simon also presents CBS Reality's CBS Written in Blood. Now in it's second series, Written in Blood unites fact and fiction, as Simon meets other top crime writers to discuss how their works of fiction have been inspired by real-life crimes.
Simon lives with his family in Brighton and the South of France.
