About Christopher Hart

Born in Gloucestershire, Christopher Hart was educated at Cheltenham College and Leicester University, then went to Oxford Brookes University where he studied English and Art History, and Birkbeck College, London, where he obtained a PhD on W.B. Yeats.

Under his original name he has written two contemporary novels, THE HARVEST, a tragedy set in the English countryside, and RESCUE ME, a London-based rom-com. Since 2001, he has written six historical novels under the pseudonym of William Napier, three of them a best-selling trilogy about Attila the Hun and the Fall of the Western Roman Empire. His work has been translated into fourteen languages, including Korean and Azerbaijani, and well-reviewed in both Sunday Sport and the Times Literary Supplement.

He currently writes regularly for the Sunday Times, where he is lead theatre critic, and the Daily Mail. As a journalist he has also worked as literary editor of the Erotic Review and agony aunt for Time Out.

He currently lives in the south west of England, and when not writing can usually be found walking or cycling or looking after his eight acres of unkempt, wildlife-friendly meadow, orchard and river.
