About David Cook

David Cook is from Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, but now lives in Leicestershire with his wife and young son.

David has been interested in history since his school days, and developed a love for the Napoleonic Wars era from his father, who painted and amassed a lead model army of the Battle of Waterloo. From there, David became fascinated with The English Civil Wars, the Wars of the Roses and English medieval history, particularly the legend of Robin Hood. David is writing a novel entitled The Wolfshead, a story of Robin, but based on the original medieval ballads as the source.

Liberty or Death is the first novella in The Soldier Chronicles series, which will be companion stories to a main volume of printed books chronicling the Napoleonic Wars era, as seen through the eyes of a young British officer. Heart of Oak, is the second and was released in June.

David is keen to answer any questions about his planned books, or about anything else history related, and can be found on twitter @davidcookauthor or facebook on the Liberty or Death page http://goo.gl/qwb2jr
