Gavin Dobson

Gavin was born in Germany and schooled in France, England and Scotland. After studying law in Edinburgh, he spent 30 years working in the finance industry, based in London, New York, Chicago and Edinburgh.


In 2003 he left the financial world and moved to a farm in Scotland, where he now combines farming with writing.


His first published book was investment text The Global Investor (Probus/McGraw Hill). It was followed by 4 volumes of short stories, The Geordie Kinloch Quartet (Librario), which capture vignettes in the colourful life of a young Scot travelling and working around the world.


His first novel, The Price of Redemption (Librario), draws on his observations of the asset management industry. It has sat in the company of Liar’s Poker and Bonfire of the Vanities in the upper reaches of Goodreads’ rankings of financial fiction.


In collaboration with illustrator Bonnie Kinloch, he has written two books for children aged 3 to 9: Not So Faraway Tales and Monkey Tales & Sticky Sparrows.
