Jonathan Whitelaw is an author, award-winning journalist, and broadcaster.
After working on the frontline of Scottish politics, he moved into journalism. Subjects he has covered have varied from breaking news, the arts, culture, and sport to fashion, music, and even radioactive waste — with everything in between.
His latest novel, The Village Hall Vendetta (April 2023), is a follow-up to the bestselling Bingo Hall Detectives — a cosy crime series set in the Lake District with a son and mother-in-law detective duo. Two more novels from the series are due for release in 2024 and 2025.
Jonathan also regularly contributes to book events, festivals, conferences and podcasts – with appearances on the Bloody Scotland Book Club, Blood Brothers, Writer’s Routine and The Bestseller Experiment, among others.
