Leonard Holton Author Biography - Further Information
Leonard Holton, born in Dublin Ireland 9 April 1915 till 22 November 1983, was a pen name for Leonard Wibberley. Wibberley was a very prolific author who wrote many books, including a lot for children. Because this is a mystery fiction site we have only included his crime based novels. All of the above books feature his series character Father Joseph Bredder. Something of an all round character, as well as being Chaplain  for the Convent of Holy Innocents he was also a former marine and expert boxer. They books are set against some very diverse backgrounds which can give a somewhat disjointed feel to the series. Only the first two titles saw an English edition, the American books are relatively easy to obtain and need not cost a great deal of money. The two British titles are rare however, as always with Robert Hale around this time, miniscule print runs with the majority destined for lending libraries
