The Author

Keith McCarthy writes novels and short stories (mostly about forensic crime), as well as being a working cellular pathologist which means, among other things, he is one of the people who perform autopsies.

The aim of this website is not only to tell you about Keith and his stories, but also to tell you the truth about what it‘s like to be a UK pathologist. Keith finds writing a welcome relief from an increasingly difficult world. Producing good writing brings Keith intense pleasure.
