You have probably heard the name Ian Rankin because you have read one or all of his series of bestselling Inspector Rebus novels. While he is best known for writing those ‘decent-enough’ novels, there is more to Ian Rankin that we believe all his fans should know: Ian Rankin’s Early Life Ian was born in the Kingdom of Fife in 1960 to James and Isobel Rankin. He went on to study at the University of Edinburgh, where he graduated with an English Literature degree in 1982, though his parents wanted him to study a trade at the university instead of literature. For three years after graduating, he worked on getting a PhD in Scottish literature while writing novels at the same time. Before he became popular with the Rebus novels, he did a number of odd jobs- he worked as a journalist, a taxman, a swineherd and a grape picker. His First Novel To this day, his first novel, Summer Rites, remains unpublished. His second novel titled The Flood was published in 1986, for which he received around 300 Pounds from the publisher. A year later in 1987, he released the first of the Rebus novels, Knots and Crosses Personal Life Ian lives in Edinburgh with his beautiful wife, Miranda whom he married in 1986. They have two sons, Jack and Kit. Ian Rankin’s Money and Spending He is estimated to have a net worth of $10 Million. One report claimed that Ian was worth about $25 million, but he quickly refuted that claim saying that he was barely worth even half of that figure. Ian believes the best investment that he ever made was getting a Sony Vaio laptop computer in 1997 for 300 Pounds. Role Models Ian counts Muriel Spark (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie) and James Hogg (Confessions of a Justified Sinner) as his significant influences. He Took A Year Off Writing Following the news of his friend and co-author Gavin Wallace “dropping dead”, Ian decided that it was time to recharge his “batteries”. He took time off writing and spent the year travelling. Rankin’s works have been translated into more than 20 languages. He has also received a lot of honours over the years. These include a Raymond Chandler Fulbright fellowship, four Crime Writer’s Association Dagger and even an OBE for the great services he has rendered to literature and readers all over the globe.
