Colin Falconer has been a novelist for over 25 years and has published over 40 books. His work has sold into translation in 23 countries. He travels regularly to research his novels and his quest for authenticity has led him to run with the bulls in Pamplona, chase tornadoes across Oklahoma and black witches across Mexico, go cage shark diving in South Africa and get tear gassed in a riot in La Paz. He also completed a 900 hundred kilometre walk of the Camino de Santiago in Spain.
His fiction has been compared to that of Ken Follett, books with romance and high adventure, intricately researched and drawn from many periods of history.
