Jem Tugwell

Jem Tugwell biography

Jem Tugwell is a near future crime fiction author with a Crime Writing MA from City University. His thrilling debut novel Proximity was published in June 2019 to great reviews:

‘A vision of the future that both chills and entertains.’ Jake Kerridge (Sunday Express Magazine)

‘Tugwell brings to life his exhilarating and provocative debut crime thriller with a twist.’ The Malestrom, 4 of the Best Beach Reads: Summer 2019

5* Review  ‘The writing hurtles along like a runaway train and you can barely pause for breath. What renders it original and ingenious is the background of embedded technology.’ Gill Chedgey (NB Magazine)

‘An ingenious and highly plausible look at crime in a future with 100% surveillance’ Claire McGowan

‘Very topical, terrifying, perfect concept for a crime novel’ Stav Sherez

‘Darkly twisted crime novel in a future that seems to grow closer every day. Fantastically imaginative and gripping.’ Angela Clarke

The sequel, NO SIGNAL, is out in June 2020.

Jem lives in Surrey with his wife and dog. He has two great children. Outside of his family and writing, Jem’s loves are snowboarding, old cars and bikes.
