Welcome Page for website
Welcome to my website!
Now, please put your mind at ease, take a deep breath, kick back, possibly grab an apple or a piping hot cup of coffee and begin reading to get to know me, my work and what this website has to offer.
My name is Trevor D’Silva, and growing up reading novels by various authors, gave me the incentive to become a writer. History and reading novels have always been my two greatest passions. Therefore, I thought combining the two would be a good way for people to learn history, while reading for pleasure.
You can learn more about me by going to About the Author menu above.
In addition, you can also read my interviews, short stories, copywriting samples (certified in April 2020 by AWAI) and articles, buy signed copies of my books, view my awards, learn about me or contact me, by clicking on the relevant menus on top of the page.
Although the main genre of my novels is historical fiction, I incorporate other genres as well. Some of them are: Crime, Mystery, Military History, Murder and a tad bit of historical romance. I try to imitate life as much as possible so that my readers can relate to the characters. So far, I’ve written two novels. My debut novel Fateful Decisions set between 1915 to 1945, and A Bloody Hot Summer a murder mystery set in 1920s England where I introduce Detective Dermot Carlyle. So if you like Agatha Christie style mysteries set during the interwar years, then this book is for you.
I wrote Fateful Decisions in American English and A Bloody Hot Summer in British English. I also put words in other languages as and when needed. So far, I’ve used Italian, French, Russian, German and Hindi words.
I’m currently writing my third novel set in the 1960s.
What I love about writing is that, while researching for my novels, I discover various historical facts, not taught in schools, or mentioned or even shown in documentaries. Some of my readers have even emailed telling me that they have learned new historical facts through my novels, and it makes me very happy. I also love taking my readers through various time periods in history set in various continents and countries. So far, I’ve set my novels in the Victorian Era through the 1920s, from America, through Europe, South Africa and India.
My novels will also make you experience turbulent times like: the 1857 Indian Mutiny, the sinking of the Lusitania, the 1943 invasion of Sicily, The Prohibition Era, World War II and other historical events.

On my short story page, you will find three short stories. In Hallowed Ground featuring Detective Carlyle, and The Joke and Poetic Justice featuring DCI Crosbie and his assistant DS Stevens. The last two are set in modern times and comparable to the hit British series Midsomer Murders.
I have written two more short stories featuring both Crosbie and Carlyle, and I will put them on the website as soon as I can get them published. I have also written screenplays for the The Joke and for Poetic Justice.
