About Robert

Hello, and thanks for visiting my blog.  

My name is Leigh Turner, but since 2014 I have written under the name of Robert Pimm.  Why?  That’s another story.

I started writing in 1986 when I was working at the British Embassy in Vienna.  One night, my girlfriend was late for a date.  While I waited, I had an idea that turned into my first novel.  When worked at the British Embassy in Moscow 1992-95, someone told me to “write about what you know”.  I wrote a thriller set in early 1990s Russia.

Neither is – yet – among my first four published books
