Take three published crime writers who had previous lives as theatre directors, TV producer/directors, script writers, one was even a media entrepreneur, floating a company on the London Stock Exchange.

Mix in a small dose of frustration with previous publishers and you have the original recipe for Diamond Books Ltd, founded in 2021 at the height of the pandemic. The first imprint was Diamond Crime and three years later it has published 22 titles from 9 authors. The second imprint is Diamond Historical and its first 3 books were published in early 2024

Beyond the joy of publishing books for their authors, the Diamond Books team also tries to adapt them for other media outlets like television and feature films – using their knowledge of the marketplace to introduce their authors to commissioning editors and producers.
