Hailing originally from Campbeltown, Diarmid MacArthur is an author now based in Renfrewshire, where he has run his optician`s business for over thirty years. Having always believed good communication to be one of the key factors in dealing with the public, Diarmid has turned that skill to writing. Drown for your Sins is his first straight crime novel.

Set in his home territory of the West of Scotland,  Diarmid has drawn on his extensive network of friends and business contacts, as well as his personal experiences, to research meticulously the details for this compelling tale of complex relationships, intrigue and, of course, brutal, bloody murder!

When not engaged in his business or writing his novels, Diarmid is also a musician, a poet and a rower. He lives with his wife and his two teenage daughters just outside the attractive little RenfewRenfrewshire village of Lochwinnoch.
