T. P. Fielden is a published author as well as journalist and broadcaster. It is the pen name used by real life person Christopher Wilson.

Born in 1947, Fielden is known for writing the Miss Dimont mystery series. This series of fiction is set in Temple Regis, a town by the seaside where reporter and sleuth Judy Dimont resides. He is also the author of the Guy Hartford series, who first was featured in the book Stealing the Crown. The story covers a British-born painter residing who goes to London when a spy plot he’s a part of goes awry. Fielden used his knowledge of British royalty to inform the Hartford novels.

The author was born in Lancashire, with a father that worked as a naval officer. He attended Betford Modern School. He began his own career working at Bedfordshire Times. He would then go to work for the Sunday Telegraph and the Daily Mail. He also was employed at ITV as an environment correspondent.

After that, he would work for the Daily Express as a diplomatic correspondent, moving on to become a William Hickey columnist. He also worked at The Times as a columnist and the Daily Telegraph as well as Today. Wilson would then transition to being a royal biographer. He has lectured on the Royal Family and contributed to different debates and television documentaries about them. He served as associate producer for different royalty documentaries on Channel Four. He was also made a visiting lecturer in 2009 for the University of Winchester.

Wilson co-founded the Philip Geddes Awards after a colleague passed in the Harrods bombing of 1983. The award’s purpose is to give encouragement to student journalists to get into journalism professionally. He was recognized for this work in 1998 when he was made an honorary member of the senior common room of St. Edmund Hall. He also helped to re-site a monument to journalism. The Three Printers sculpture was moved to the Goldsmiths’ Company public gardens in London.

Wilson originally based his pen name on some of his ancestor. T.P. was the name of his great-grandfather, while Fielden came from his grandfather. The author has a pet cat named Cato. The tabby cat in his Dimont murder mystery series named Mulligatawny was inspired by Cato. He urges potential writers to begin writing today, as persevering is the main ingredient in writing a book.

Wilson has worked in many different fields from being a diplomatic correspondent to a gossip columnist, newspaper reporter, obituary writer, and arts reviewer. While he used to reside in London, he now resides in Devon, which helped to inspire his Miss Dimont novels. The Miss Dimont character was based on a woman also named Judy in real life, a local newspaper reporter that was always seen with a smile.

He is married to his wife, Carolyne Cullum. She created a children’s television series in the nineties for ITV, writing some of its scripts. The author says that when it comes to his life, he wouldn’t change anything. He recommends readers patronize libraries in addition to purchasing books.

T.P. Fielden is the creator and the author of the Miss Dimont Mystery series of fictional novels. The series first started off in 2017 with the publication of the debut novel, The Riviera Express. He would follow that up the same year with the publication of the sequel, Resort to Murder. In 2018 the third novel came out, A Quarter Past Dead. The fourth novel, Died and Gone to Devon, was published in 2019.

The Riviera Express is the first novel in the Miss Dimont series by T.P. Fielden. In this story readers get to meet Judy Dimont for the first time and follow her along on her adventures.

Gerald Hennessey is a handsome movie star with legions of adoring fans. He’s on his way to a place known as Temple Regis. This is a nice seaside town in Devonshire placed on the picturesque English Riviera. However, he never quite makes it there. While taking the 430 straight out from Paddington, he is mysteriously murdered. Temple Regis is dismayed at the killing and the whole community is affected by the loss.

Miss Judy Dimont is also similarly affected. She reports for The Riviera Express, the local newspaper. This curly haired journalist smells a story, and is soon looking into the events placed around Gerald’s murder. She is called up to go to another crime scene shortly after, as there’s been another murder.

Judy takes Herbert, her moped, to see what’s going on. There she finds a man named Arthur Shrimsley on the tops of the cliffs overlooking the beach in what could be a suicide. Or it could yet again be foul play. Judy is looking into these crime scenes and asking questions. She wonders why a famous man such as Gerald would be coming to their small town anyway.

She also is asking whether the movie star and Arthur may be connected in some way. She’s trying to get all the answers that she can, but it’s proving difficult. Especially with her editor keeping an eagle eye on her. Can Judy solve the cases and bring those responsible to justice? Read this murder mystery to find out!

Resort to Murder is the second novel in the Miss Dimont mystery series by T.P. Fielden. The beautiful town of Devon is back, but its beaches may be tainted when an unexpected event results in death.

Temple Regis has a beautiful shoreline with wonderful waters and sands. But one morning, it’s not such a nice scene to see. When a body is discovered there, suddenly the best beach in town has become the scene of a crime.

Miss Judy Dimont is the local reporter and is all about the truth and free speech. Working for The Riviera Express, she knows that an unexplained death is worth looking into. It’s also a good chance to get Valentine Waterford, her younger recruit, more familiar with the field and cases in general.

Valentine and Miss Dimont are looking into the scene, but can’t figure out why the body is unidentifiable. Or why Inspector Topham thinks it’s murder. When another person winds up dead, could the cases be linked? Pick up a copy of this book to find out what happens!
