Today we’re meeting Jack Lockwood, the main character from the Jack Lockwood Mysteries series by Geoffrey West.
Hello, my name is Jack Lockwood. I am a writer and Behavioural Investigative Adviser to police forces, and I live in a converted gatehouse, that used to belong to a now demolished mansion, near Canterbury, Kent, England.
Because I get involved in police cases, and do a lot or research to write my ‘true crime’ books I quite often land up in fairly outlandish adventures, chronicled by my friend Geoffrey West.
I like mysteries, helping people who are in trouble and I love animals. And I’m fairly practical –I do building work, carpentry and used to do illegal bare knuckle boxing before I saw the danger and foolishness of such a hobby. But it trained me to be able to look after myself whenever I need to, which is quite a lot of the time, especially when I ruffle some feathers, or lift up a stone and find some pretty nasty things going on.
And on the whole I’m unlucky in love – I get involved with various women but somehow circumstances combine to wreck my chances, so I guess I’ve had to be pretty resourceful and comfortable with my own company.
There are a couple of books of major enquiries I took on recently – complete crime stories, Rock’n’Roll Suicide, and Doppelganger. Plus I have a blog where I document short stories, of little things that have happened to me.
I don’t particularly care about big issues, such as global warming or the environment. What gets me going is injustice and people being treated badly for whatever reason. When that happens I do my best to put things right. Unfortunately things rarely go smoothly. . .
Geoffrey West is a freelance journalist and author living in Surrey, England.
