The Author


Robert Stephen Parry is a UK writer of historical fiction with interests in a wide range of time periods, from Tudor & Elizabethan, through 18th-century Georgian, right up to the era of Victorian England and the Belle Époque. “I believe stories are a great way to help people discover history, and if the stories can be entertaining at the same time, even better.”

Well researched and vivid historical settings combine with unusual elements of mystery, romance and magical realism. Publications to date:
