Vic Evans was born in Wrexham and grew up in the town and on his aunt's hill farm in North Wales. Having worked in the aircraft industry and in engineering for twenty-nine years and taught in secondary schools for a further twenty years, Vic turned his hand to writing fiction. His first novel, Miriam, was inspired by his own family history as well as by the recollections of Wrexham men who fought in the Spanish Civil War. Murder in the Welsh Hills, his second novel, is a tense and gripping political thriller set in the rugged landscape of Llangollen.
Vic Evans lives on the Kent coast and he has three children and four grandchildren.
