About the Author

Born in the famed battle town of Hastings, England, Nathan Dylan Goodwin has always had a passion for writing in one form or another. Having gained a Bachelor's degree in Radio, Film and Television studies, Nathan went on to gain a Masters degree in Creative Writing, from Canterbury Christ Church University. Nathan started his writing career with non-fiction, his first book 'Hastings at War' being published in May 2005. This was followed by three further local history books pertaining to the area around his home town of Hastings. His first forays into fiction writing culminated in the publication in 2013 of 'Hiding the Past' - a genealogical crime mystery novel. The next books in the series are: The Lost Ancestor (#2), The Orange Lilies (#3), The America Ground (#4), The Spyglass File (#5), The Missing Man (#6), The Suffragette's Secret (a Morton Farrier short story) and The Wicked Trade (#7). In his very early forties, Nathan enjoys running, skiing, reading, genealogy, writing and time with his husband and son. That about sums it up! --This text refers to the paperback edition.
