About S. C. Lomax
I am a true crime writer. I was born in 1982. I am a graduate of
of Sheffield, where I
graduated in 2004 with a degree in Archaeology and Prehistory. However,
writing is my passion and within days of finishing my university course, my
debut book The Case of Barry George was published. I have gone on to
write books about notorious convicted mass murderer Jeremy Bamber, unsolved
murders and historic crimes.
I began writing at the age of eight. My earliest work was
written for personal interest but I later began to submit articles for
publication in magazines, a number of which were printed. Whilst at
university I wrote for student news websites in Sheffield
and a national website.
In addition to writing books, I have written many articles for
newspapers including the Sunday Express.
I focus on researching and writing about unsolved crimes and historic crimes.
However, in the past I have researched and written about miscarriages of
justice. I ran the Justice for James Power campaign. In December 2004 James
Power, and co-accused Graham Huckerby, had their convictions for conspiring
to commit armed robbery overturned at the Court of Appeal. Sadly James Power
died a year after his release. Of the approximately two hundred cases I have
studied, mainly in Britain
and the USA,
I am only convinced of the innocence of six individuals and I continue to be
involved in these campaigns.
As a result of being involved in high profile cases, I have frequently
featured in the press, magazines, given interviews on radio and BBC News
Channel. You can read some of the articles on this website, linked from the ‘What
The Media Has Said’ section.
