Perry Iles was born in Cambridge (the English one) in 1955. He moved to Scotland in 1991 and now lives in the Borders with his wife, their daughter and a demented whippet. He has been writing for many years, and is the author of My Mary, a supernatural thriller, and its sequel, The Sorrowless Field, as well as the crime-thriller The King Of Wands. He has also written several short stories and a book about his memories of European travel as a child in the 1960s, The Next Horizon. He is currently working on his fourth novel, The Other Side of Here.
In 2004 his ending to Fay Weldon’s One Size Fits All reached the final three in the BBC’s End of Story series, and in 2007 two of his stories were short-listed in the monthly competitions of Writers' News and Writing Magazine.
Until recently, Perry worked in the field of IT support, but he has now given up this career to concentrate on being a full-time writer. Perry’s other interests include travel, modern music, and the sustained abuse of electric guitars.
