Jonathan Whitelaw

Jonathan Whitelaw is an author, award-winning journalist and broadcaster.

After working on the frontline of Scottish politics, he moved into journalism. Subjects he has covered have varied from breaking news, the arts, culture and sport to fashion, music and even radioactive waste — with everything in between. His work has appeared in The Sun, Daily Mail, Scotsman, STV and The Scots Magazine as well as numerous international newspapers and websites.

He’s also a regular reviewer on the BBC – specifically for arts reviews on The Afternoon Show on BBC Radio Scotland.

Jonathan also regularly contributes to book events and festivals, with appearances on the Blood Brothers podcast and the Bloody Scotland Book Club.

And for the last two years he has presented the Desert Island Crooks panel at the Bloody Scotland crime writing festival.

Jonathan’s forthcoming novel is set to be announced shortly.
