Best-selling Yorkshire bobby turned author Mike Pannett stopped off at a Thirsk bookshop this week to check out proof copies of his new book.

Mike Pannett’s Yorkshire, which will be published by Dalesman on 1 October 2013, takes readers on a personal tour of his home county of Yorkshire, lavishly illustrated with stunning pictures by acclaimed York photographer John Potter.

Mike visits the real-life places depicted in his bestselling books Now Then, Lad, You’re Coming with Me, Lad, Not on my Patch, Lad, Just the Job, Lad and Up Beat and Down Dale.

The sun-kissed café garden of Thirsk’s White Rose Books proved a great spot for Mike to leaf through one of the hot-off-the-press proofs while he enjoyed a proper brew of his favourite Yorkshire Tea.

Mike was born in York, and joined the Metropolitan Police in 1988. He became one of the youngest officers to be given his own patch, and served on the Divisional Crime Squad, Murder Squad and TSG (Riot Police).

He transferred to North Yorkshire police in 1997 as he missed the countryside – and fly-fishing! Mike became a rural beat officer and eventually, a wildlife officer.

In total, he served nearly twenty years in the police, during which he became one of the highest commended officers.

In 2005 Mike starred in the BBC’s Country Cops and was inspired to write about his adventures in the North Yorks force. And his bestselling books have won the former policeman a legion of fans across Yorkshire and around the world

Mike now lives with his wife, Ann, and their three children in a small village in the shadow of the North York Moors.
