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. 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. He is currently working on a fifth novel (a third Lydia Silverstream story), which is expected to be published in 2021/2022.
DJ Wiseman also edited (and contributed to) the Askance short story anthology Positional Vertigo and in 2021 edited Saltwater And Other Stories. His short fiction Unforgettable won the Retreat West flash fiction award and Double Aspect won The Ghost Story award in autumn 2018. Most recently he had stories included in Life On The Margins and Moose House Stories Vol I. Mystery Weekly and Geist Magazine featured stories in 2019 and he has been a finalist for several prizes including the Commonwealth Writers Short Story prize.
