Why village life is such a mystery for author Ian!

ITWAS ex-Huddersfield Polytechnic student Ian McFadyen's first attempt at writing.

Now Ian, who graduated in marketing in 1984, will have his first book published.

Ian, 48, from Hertfordshire, wrote thriller Little White Lies five years ago.

But the book was picked up last year by Book Guild, a publisher specialising in new authors.

It tells the tale of a London police inspector who moves to the quite life of rural Lancashire only to be presented with a murder in his village.

The dark underworld of an seemingly tranquil village then slowly unravels.

Ian, originally from West Lancashire, said: "I've always been a fan of whodunnits and I'm from Lancashire, so I drew inspiration from where I grew up.

"I've always liked Agatha Christie and other mysteries." Ian, who played for the Polytechnic's rugby union team, added: "I've got lots of fond memories of Huddersfield, except training up at Salendine Nook in the cold!

"Huddersfield was a fantastic place for students back then."

Little White Lies is available from May 29 priced pounds 16.99. Email www.bookguild.co.uk
