About the Author
Jack Everett has been a lover of historical novels since childhood when an uncle loaned him a copy of Frank Yerby’s The Foxes of Harrow. This, coupled with a love of Fantasy and Sci/Fi, have shaped today’s writer. Jack has been a Youth Leader, a Training Adviser and a Royal Air Force Dog Instructor in his time and counts among his hobbies: wood turning, cue making, painting landscapes and writing, with writing being more of a passion. He has written for magazines and co-written several novels with David Coles including a WWII story, thrillers and a tribute story celebrating the author Jack Vance. He hopes to live to be two hundred and visit the outposts on Mars. Find out more about Jack at his website, www.jackleverett.me.uk, Facebook or Twitter.
David Coles began writing fantasy and science fiction rather longer ago than he likes to remember. He is also the co-author of a number of fantasy and science fiction stories with Jack Everett, including Fantocine, Merlin’s Kin and the forthcoming medieval mystery, Death and Taxes. A founding member of the international Historical Novel Society, Mr. Coles is proud to have attended workshops run by U.K. writers Terry Pratchett and David Gemmel. Mr. Coles lives with his wife in Yorkshire, United Kingdom, where his only pet is a laptop. In order to support his writing habit, he has been forced into menial day-jobs: designing and writing computer software ranging from industrial control to web-site feeds for U.K. companies and banks and even lecturing at Further Education Colleges. He has also had several electronics projects featured in the amateur press. Find out more at his website, www.davidbcoles.co.uk.
