About the Author:

Rupert Colley was born one Christmas Day, which means, as a child, he lost out on presents. Nonetheless, looking back on it, he lived a childhood with a "silver spoon in my mouth" - brought up in a rambling manor house in the beautiful Devon countryside.  It's been downhill ever since.
 
He was a librarian for a long time, a noble profession. Then he started a series called History In An Hour, "history for busy people", which he sold to HarperCollins UK. 
 
Rupert now lives in London with his wife, two children and dog (a fluffy cockapoo) and writes historical fiction, mainly 20th century war and misery.  Historical fiction with heart.

Review:

`If the past is a foreign country, History in an Hour is like a high-class tour operator, offering delightfully enjoyable short breaks in the rich and diverse continent of our shared past' Dominic Sandbrook`The practice of History is ever-evolving, and the History In An Hour idea brings it back up to date for the digital age' Andrew Roberts, Bookseller`This is genius' MacWorld.com
