Wilkie Martin enjoys writing funny poems. Videos of this little collection are on youtube. He is the author of the bestselling Unhuman series of novels, set in the English Cotswolds, where he lives with his partner. In these he introduces readers to a close-knit, small-town community filled with quirky and occasionally dangerous inhabitants, and an 'unhuman' policeman who maintains law and order. His stories reflect his love of the enigmatic, with memorable characters and, like many of the latter, he has a taste for curry. He is a qualified scuba instructor and has dived in many places around the world and in the UK.
