Born in England in 1957 Dorinda Balchin graduated from Warwick University in 1980 and began a career in teaching. Books and writing had always been a passion for her, but with two children to raise and a demanding career in the field of education Dorinda’s love of literature was mainly confined to reading with little time to explore and develop her writing. Then in 2008, along with her husband, Dorinda gave up her teaching career and made a life-changing move to southern India where the couple now run a guesthouse.
This change of lifestyle has allowed Dorinda the time to develop some of the writing projects which she has worked on over the years. Her love of history is clearly reflected in her well resear ... read more

At the tender age of eight, Norm Clark acquired a copy of "The Wizard of Oz" and became a voracious reader, which unwittingly sowed the seeds of a dream to write. Many years later, Ken Follett's "Eye of the needle" gave birth to the repressed desire to author novels, and it set the genre. The need to provide food and shelter forced his dream to the back burner, but he spent his free time studying the creative writing process until able to begin his first action novel. The favorable reception of "Resurrected" encouraged him to continue with his dream.
