About the Author

Bio

Author Picture

Bernard Cornwell

Born in Essex in 1944 Bernard Cornwell was adopted at the age of six weeks by two members of a strict fundamentalist sect called the Peculiar People. He grew up in a household that forbade alcohol, cigarettes, dances, television, conventional medicine and toy guns. Not surprisingly, he developed a fascination for military adventure.

In 1979, his life changed when he fell in love with an American. "Judy couldn't live here, so I gave up my job and moved to the US. I couldn't get a green card, and for 18 months the only thing I could do was write novels." The result was his first book about 19th century hero, Richard Sharpe, SHARPE'S EAGLE.

Today with many Sharpe adventures behind him and worldwide sales of over 2 million, plus a series about the American Civil War, the Starbuck novels, and an enormously successful trilogy about King Arthur, The Warlord Chronicles. Bernard Cornwell owns houses in Cape Cod and Florida and two boats. Every year he takes two months off from his writing and spends most of his time on his 24 foot Cornish crabber, Royalist.



Synopsis of this title

Northerner Nathaniel Starbuck, son of a zealous anti-slavery preacher, finds himself fighting for the Southern cause in the private regiment known as the Falconer Legion. His best friend Adam Falconer, meanwhile, has defected in the opposite direction.
