Patrons and Trustees

Patrons and Trustees for Bash Local

RC Bridgestock is a co-author team between husband and wife Robert (Bob) & Carol Bridgestock who are proud to be Patrons of B.A.S.H


So what makes the couple qualified to write in the crime genre?

With nearly half a century of combined police experience they bring unique insight of how real life cases are conducted, into their fictional stories. This adds authenticity rarely seen in British crime fiction coupled with warmth, humour and humanity that we experienced during our careers. By reading our stories we hope you will be immersed into the world we create, just as much as we enjoy imagining it, and that our passion for entertaining crime fiction, coupled with our insight into the investigation room of a major investigation, leaps from the pages. The couple are also consultants for BBC 1 Happy Valley. @RCBridgestock Literary Agent David H Headley/DHH Literary Agency, Cecil Court, London.
