ABOUT SIMON

Simon Wyatt was born in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1983.  He was raised in Glendene, in the west of Auckland, where he attended Kelston Boys’ High School, before completing a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Auckland, majoring in political science.

After completing his studies, Simon commenced a ten-year career with the New Zealand Police, the last six years of which he spent as a detective in the Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB): two years on the General Squad CIB, one year in the Adult Sexual Abuse Team and three years in the Child Protection Team.

In 2012, while recovering from Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a rare and potentially life-threatening autoimmune disorder, he started working on The Student Body.

Currently an investigator for the Serious Fraud Office (SFO); Simon is working on his second novel.

Simon’s primary goal with his writing – using his past experience and skills as a serious crime investigator – is to bring authenticity to his readers, with thrilling fast-paced storylines based in a local setting of Auckland, New Zealand.
