Harry started the Writers’ Workshop in 2005 by starting a website that offers editorial services. He spent approximately £800 on the website. The trouble for Writers’ Workshop started when more people started to send him their manuscripts than what he could manage on his own. Thus, he decided to hire an editor assistant and then kept on hiring more of them to fulfill the need of the online business.
Writer’s Workshop offers manuscript assessments and editorial advice to upcoming and budding new writers. Writers’ Workshop also offers creative writing courses and also organize the best writers’’ festival in the UK. This was the way in which Harry Bingham played the role of a literary consultant.

He mentioned that along with the mystery of the novel that one has to unravel as one reads the book, one also needs to unravel the mysterious character of Fiona herself. Harry writes in the first person as a woman, despite being a guy himself as he believes that most of the mystery stories have middle aged men as their heroes or people of substance and he wanted to write something different and from a different point of view.
Also, Harry has used Wales as the backdrop of his crime series, he is not Welsh himself but he did spend huge chunks of his childhood in Wales and that is where his mother currently resides.
