E.M. Swift-Hook


E.M. Swift-Hook is the author of Fortune's Fools, a dark space opera triple trilogy, and co-author of the Dai and Julia Mysteries, an alternate history whodunit series, set in a modern-day Britain where the Roman Empire still rules.

In the words that Robert Heinlein put into the mouth of Lazarus Long: 'Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards.'

Having tried a number of different careers, before settling in the North-East of England with family, three dogs, cats and a small flock of rescued chickens, E.M. Swift-Hook now spends a lot of time in private and has very clean hands.
