Ade Grant was born in Croydon and has never fully recovered.
Raised by wild beasts and nourished by the leavings at squat parties, Ade was finally rescued by Doctor Hayes and smuggled to a rehabilitation facility for ex-Croydonites in a secret Brighton location. Slowly, over the course of several years, Ade was taught the basics of human interaction.
Ade Grant now writes fiction, poetry and politics, and can be found outside pharmacies in London, rooting through bins.
13 June 1483. Richard Duke of Gloucester plots within the Tower of London. Will he seize the crown from his nephew, a boy under lock and key? Or will he crown the child and sacrifice his own claim forever? His closest ally is on the edge of betrayal, his court is filled with deceit, and every choice seems riddled with blood.
