About Me


Hi there. I’m a freelance writer based in West Cornwall. I’ve covered numerous subjects, but I’m best known for True Crime, Military History, Motorsport History and Disability issues. If you like my work, drop me a line. I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. I usually work more for fees, but  don’t mind the occasional freebie if it catches my eye.

I’ve been an expert consultant on true crime for a BBC Radio 4 series (Punt P.I) and I’ve contributed to various publications including Real Crime Magazine, All About History, The Big Issue, New Internationalist, Crime Magazine, History Is Now, Strategy & Tactics and World at War among others. I can do print, online and radio work when available.

I’m prompt, reliable, professional, flexible and affordable and always happy to consider jobs outside of my usual areas. It helps keep the job interesting and stops me getting stale. So, if you like my CV and want a pen for hire, drop me a line and we can talk business.

I can be contacted here or via my Twitter account @RobertWalsh75 if you want to comment, talk business or just say hello.

All the best.

  2. Do you know where the old Sing Sing electric chair is? Have they sold it? Demolished it?


    • Sing Sing’s first chair was removed and placed in the Warden’s office opposite his desk. He liked to put people off balance if they’d come to talk business. The second chair was shipped to Green Haven, another of New York’s maximum-security prisons, in 1969 and set up for use if needed. Last I heard it was retired and had gone to the Newseum in Alexandria, Virginia as an exhibit.

      New York abolished the death penalty in 1969, the last execution was that of Eddie Lee Mays on August 15, 1963. It was briefly reinstated under Governor George Pataki in 1995, but New York’s courts ruled it unconstitutional. Currently, New York is a non-death penalty state.
