About the Author

John Drake trained as a biochemist to post-doctorate research level before realising he was no good at science. His working career was in the television department of ICI until 1999 when he became a full-time writer. John's hobby is muzzle-loading shooting, and his interests are British history and British politics (as a spectator), plus newspapers, TV news, and current affairs. He is married with a son and two grandchildren. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Hallo,

First: thanks for the reviews. Every one taken seriously, even the derogatory because nobody asked me to write, and I therefore deserve whatever anyone says of me.

Second: a number of readers of my Fletcher books have asked "where is he going next?" So please note that the next Fletcher will be .... 'Fletcher and the Constitution'. That's the US Constitution, and also a US Navy ship. Both will be in peril and Fletcher will try to save them. He has American as well as British nationality.

You might also like to, try my Thief Catcher' (Georgian detective story), 'Agent of Death' (WW2 super-weapon), 'Wayfinder' (Viking Saga), or the 'Flint and Silver' trilogy which explains how Long John Siver lost his leg and why they buried the treasure (but be warned that these are for adults not children!).

Those are my latest books, but I've been making up stories ever since I spent half an hour each day walking from Wilmot Street, Bethnal Green, East London (where I lived) to the Central Foundation Boys' school. And then another half an hour each day walking back. The bus was quicker, but I walked, and my imagination ran free to make up stories because I have a fountain in my head, which never stops.

Thanks for reading this far. And I hope you like the books because I loved writing them

All best, John Drake
