About William Bertram

At the time of writing, I am the author of five novels and four plays, nearly all based on a fictional British seafaring family, the Browns. I do not write these novels merely to amuse; I have always had it in the back of my mind to educate. Having written an elaborate work, it seemed pointless to me, if all it does is merely entertain. Consequently, by means of designing an amusing series of causes and effects, (although agreeable to the reader,) unfortunately does not fill my set criteria. Therefore, I have sought to weave into and around the plot, historical data, characters and facts in order to engross the reader and lead to further private study.
Within these novels, although conflict and warfare abound, these books try to look beyond the fighting into the mind and intentions of our hero. It is consequently left to the reader to gain an insight into our hero's future actions by examining the minutia of his daily life along with his interaction among the other characters and any national and local events occurring around that time. Do not buy these novels if you want blood on every page, these books are essentially written for the naval history buff who has read around this subject. I would however, recommend them to a new recruit to the Georgian naval novel who desires total immersion in that period.
