Neil Mackay

Agent: Tom Witcomb

Neil is an  a multi-award winning investigative journalist, newspaper executive, author of both fiction and non-fiction, radio broadcaster and film-maker. He was nominated for a Bafta for his last film which was an investigation into the global web of the far-right. He was also nominated for a Sony award for my talk show on Radio Scotland.

His first book - The War on Truth, based on his coverage of the Iraq War - was a howl of rage 'against the liars and idiots who pretend to be our leaders.' and his first novel, All the Little Guns Went Bang Bang Bang - a story of two children who kill during the Troubles in Northern Ireland - was heavily influenced by his coverage of the Jamie Bulger case, which had a profound effect on him.

He is a walking-talking encyclopedia when it comes to horror movies, and his novel Wolf Trial — a semi-fictional account of the world’s first serial killer, who is captured but put on trial as a werewolf — both stands as a homage to the horror genre, as well as subverting it at every opportunity. 

He can also read your future in Tarot cards, palms and tea leaves.
