Alaric BondI have worked in various fields including television, radio and stage drama but now focus on historical nautical fiction with sixteen published novels to date. Thirteen are in the acclaimed ‘Fighting Sail’ series that centres on the British navy of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars.

Apart from writing and reading I enjoy playing a variety of musical instruments, cycling, sailing and public speaking.

A superb storyteller, Bond weaves bits and pieces into suspenseful scenarios, which move like smoke and oakum from one plight to the next.Quarterdeck Magazine
