M. P. Wright
M P Wright was born in Leicestershire in 1965 into a family farming home that can be traced back through seven generations. After leaving school he decided to pursue his first love, music, not as a musician, but in a wide variety of support roles before he became a private investigator. He realised that excitement and Adrenalin were not a good substitute for a proper career and a steady job, and in 1989 retrained in the mental health sector. His role was at the sharp end of an intense, often dangerous and threatening profession, but his learned and inherent ability meant that he was promoted into the probation service and eventually the Home Office, where he was responsible for offender risk assessments.
M P Wright has retained his deep love of music, especially film scores, both modern and vintage. He is an aficionado of real ales and is the Writer In Residence at the Criterion Free house in Leicester.
His Ellington novels are currently in development for television
M P Wright has two daughters and lives with his wife, Jen, and their two large, rescued Rottweiler dogs.
