- Louise Doughty is the author of eight novels, most recently Black Water. Moving between Europe during the cold war, California and the Civil Rights struggle, and Indonesia during the massacres of 1965 and the decades of military dictatorship that follow, Black Water is an epic novel that explores some of the darkest events of recent world history through the story of one troubled man. As well as an author Louise is a critic and cultural commentator for UK and international newspapers and broadcasts regularly for the BBC.
- Francis Spufford is the author of Golden Hill, his first novel. Golden Hill is set in 18th-Century New York, a generation before the American Revolution. Rich in language and historical perception, yet compulsively readable, it has a plot that twists in every chapter, and a puzzle at its heart that won’t let go till the last paragraph of the last page. Francis is also the author of five highly-praised books of non-fiction and he teaches writing at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
- Richard T Kelly‘s third novel The Knives – a follow-up to his acclaimed debut Crusaders – is a gripping political thriller set at the heart of government, concerning a fictional Home Secretary who finds himself besieged by multiple crises, both political and personal. Richard is also a screenwriter and author of bestselling non-fiction books, and he blogs at http://www.richardkelly.co.uk.
- Harry Parker joined the British Army when he was 23 and served in Iraq in 2007 and Afghanistan in 2009. His debut novel is Anatomy of a Soldier, which is a moving, enlightening and fiercely dramatic novel about one man’s journey of survival and the experiences of those around him in war. The story is told from the perspective of inanimate objects that surround Parker’s characters – an original take with utterly compelling results.
