About David Flin
David Flin isn’t quite sure how he’s come to have collected a lifetime’s experience without really having had a life plan or any of the things people have said are essential for success in life. He was in the Royal Marines for around 13 years, until one day he forgot to duck. Then he spent a bit over a decade doing this and that, until he worked out that writing was quite a comfortable way of making a living. He’s written very technical stuff about gas turbines and the power industry, and has branched out into writing fiction, some of which draws on personal experience.

The story of how Art came to become King of Britain is well-known, but many have wondered why he was called "Pendragon."
