Colin Falconer is an internationally best-selling author. Born in London, he was a freelance journalist and advertising copywriter for many years. But writing novels was his passion and led him to write his first book, Venom, based on his own experiences in South East Asia. He has now published over 50 books that have been translated into 23 languages. He travels widely for research; it has led him to chasing tornadoes in Texas, diving with sharks in South Africa and running with the bulls in Spain.

“My name is William Shakespeare. No, not that Shakespeare; and no jests please, I’ve heard them all. I’m the other one, the ne’er do well cousin, the loafer, known to family and friends as the dunce, the one who could not recite Cicero or Horace, who could never be as good as his clever cuz, the one who has just come to Bishopsgate from Stratford with silly dreams in his head and a longing to make something more of himself than just a glover’s handyman.”
It is not easy having the same name as one of London’s darlings. People make comparisons, and you are then forever known as the loafer, the idiot cousin, the burden. He had come to London to make something of himself, like his cousin THE William Shakespeare, but instead of fame and fortune there is just the humiliation of living penniless in Will’s loft and having his heart broken by a titled and sophisticated lady. His only talents seem to brawling and bumping into the right people in disreputable taverns.AmazoniBooksNookGoogleKobo
