Colin Dexter was born in Stamford, Lincolnshire. In 1950 he went to study at Christ's College, Cambridge. Before that he undertook his National Service with the Royal Corps of Signals. Colin Dexter graduated from Cambridge University in 1953 and has lived in Oxford since 1966. He is married and has one son and one daughter. He decided to begin the Inspector Morse series while reading a very unsatisfactory crime novel during a family holiday â€“ and knew he could do better. That first novel, Last Bus to Woodstock, appeared in 1975. The thirteenth - and last - novel in the series, The Remorseful Day, will be published by Macmillan in September.
During his career he has garnered much critical praise, and has won many awards. In particular The Way Through The Woods and The Wench Is Dead were awarded Gold Daggers by the Crime Writersâ€™ Association for best crime novel of the year, and he has also been awarded Silver Daggers for Service Of All the Dead and The Dead Of Jericho.
In 1997 Colin Dexter was awarded the CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger for outstanding services to crime fiction.
The Inspector Morse novels have been adapted for the small screen, with huge success, in Carlton/Central Televisionâ€™s series starring John Thaw and Kevin Whately. In each episode Colin Dexter makes a cameo appearance, and in 1993 achieved his ambition of a speaking part!Information source: wikipedia
