About the Author:

David Harvey, born in New Zealand in 1946, rose to fame when he won his country's Mastermind competition in 1980; his specialist subject was The Lord of the Rings. Harvey went on to win International Mastermind in 1981 with the same subject.When visiting London with his wife, he was asked by Rayner Unwin if he would like to write something about Tolkien and the result was The Song of Middle-earth. Harvey still lives in New Zealand, where he is now a district court judge.
