About Red Dog Press

Red Dog Press started in 2018 with just two titles and have grown rapidly since, with some fifteen titles now released, and double that to come this year. The small core team of three is supported by some exceptionally talented freelancers and a huge passion for books.We started Red Dog Press to feed that passion. We wanted to find new voices, both authors and characters, and give them the chance to shine. As a team, we are obsessed with crime, mystery and thriller, but we tend to enjoy our dastardly tales with a twist of something else.


We're not talking about a twisty ending—that's standard. No, what makes us happy is a surprising and original angle on a familiar theme, and characters whose jobs or lives allow them to get into scrapes without them necessarily having to follow procedure.

Diverse voices and diverse characters in a traditional genre - that's what makes us tick.
