Although now a resident of Cambridge, DJ Wiseman previously lived and worked in Oxfordshire since 1973. In more recent times he has divided his time between the UK and Nova Scotia. For the last 20 years he has had a passionate interest in genealogy, discovering branches of his family scattered around the globe. During that time he has been a regular visitor to the USA and Canada where he has close family connections as well as more distant cousins. His family researches have taken him as far as Vancouver to find his grandfather’s ‘other’ family – and he has written about his experiences for a national magazine.
Lifelong interests include maps, reading, writing, travel and photography. In 2009 in conjunction with a close friend he produced The Further Bank, a memoir of photographic expeditions around the landscape of the upper Thames.
A Habit Of Dying was DJ Wiseman’s first published full length novel, and has since been followed by The Subtle Thief Of Youth. A new story is being developed but he has not commented on whether it features the same characters as in A Habit Of Dying.
