DJ Wiseman lived and worked in Oxfordshire most of his adult life but in recent years he has spent more time in Canada and became a permanent resident there in 2016. He currently lives in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.
Lifelong interests include maps, reading, writing, travel and photography. And for the last 25 years, genealogy.
In 2009 in conjunction with close friend Neil Evans he produced The Further Bank, a memoir of photographic expeditions around the landscape of the upper Thames. A Habit Of Dying was his first published full-length novel, and first of the Lydia Silverstream family history stories. It was followed by The Subtle Thief Of Youth – another mystery story but quite unconnected to the themes of A Habit Of Dying. In 2016 he returned to those themes with his third novel, The Death of Tommy Quick And Other Lies. 2019 saw the publication of Casa Rosa, a story with a different setting but returning to some familiar themes. In 2023 the third of the Lydia Silverstream stories was published – Old Wrongs.
DJ Wiseman also edited (and contributed to) the Askance short story anthology Positional Vertigo and in 2021 edited Saltwater And Other Stories. His own short fiction (written under his proper name – David Wiseman) Unforgettable won the Retreat West flash fiction award and Double Aspect won The Ghost Story award in autumn 2018. He’s had stories included in Life On The Margins and Moose House Stories Vol I. Mystery Weekly and Geist Magazine have featured his writing and most recently After Dinner Conversation in the USA published the short story The Devil You Know. He has also been a long- or short-list finalist for several prizes including the Commonwealth Writers Short Story prize.
