Short biography
Christopher Brookmyre writes both science fiction and mystery. In the latter category, he is considered to be a Tartan Noir writer, and whose novels, generally in a crime or police procedural frame, mix comedy, politics, social comment and action with a strong narrative. His science fiction novel, Bedlam, was turned into a video game, which he also wrote.

He and his wife, anaesthetist Dr. Marisa Haetzman,
have also written two novels under the pseudonym Ambrose Parry. [from Bloody Scotland (2018), and Wikipedia (retrieved 8/27/2021)]
