About Colin Falconer

Born in the north of London, Colin drove cabs and played guitar in dark bars and rough pubs before joining an advertising agency – ‘a step down.’ He then worked as a television and radio scriptwriter, and as a freelance journalist. He has been a full time novelist for the last twenty years with his work so far translated into seventeen languages.

He travels regularly to research his novels and his quest for authenticity led him to run with the bulls in Pamplona, pursue tornadoes across Oklahoma, go cage shark diving in South Africa, accidentally get tear gassed in La Paz, and complete a 1000km walk of the Camino in Spain.

A critic once introduced him to an audience this way: ‘Colin Falconer’s novels are based on dedicated research and a profound knowledge of his subject, stories of passion and human frailty drawn on a vast canvas, about the perennial nature of love and the human spirit.’
