Colin Falconer

Colin Falconer has published over thirty novels translated into 25 languages. He is best known for historical adventure fiction, and his EPIC ADVENTURE SERIES of stand-alone tales draws inspiration from many periods of history.

He has also written a present-day crime series featuring DI Charlie George, a detective in a North London murder squad.

Born in London, Colin started out in advertising, then became a freelance journalist. He was a columnist, before gravitating to script writing for radio and television; writing for shows as diverse as daytime soaps and British comedy. He wrote a number of humour books and prize-winning YA fiction before he published his first epic novel and became a full-time novelist.


Colin also has a series set in medieval times


Kevin Tumlinson

Kevin Tumlinson is an award-winning and bestselling novelist, living in Texas and working in random coffee shops, cafés, and hotel lobbies worldwide. His primary work is in thrillers—including his wildly popular Dan Kotler Archaeological Thrillers. But he also successfully published science fiction, fantasy, and escapist fiction.

Kevin grew up in Wild Peach, Texas, where he was raised by his grandparents and given a healthy respect for storytelling. He often found himself in trouble in school for writing stories instead of doing his actual assignments, and he doesn't regret that in the least. And as Wild Peach was in no way metropolitan, or even approaching suburban, young Kevin had plenty of time to put his imagination to work crafting entire universes of characters, settings, and artifacts that would later inform his adult career choice.

Kevin's love for history, archaeology, and science has been a tremendous source of material for his writing, feeding his fiction and giving him just the excuse he needs to read the next article, biography, or research paper, visit the next city or country, and embark on the next adventure. Kevin and his wife, Kara, can often be found traveling as van-lifers, along with their little chihuahua terrier, Mini.


Emma Lombard

Emma Lombard was born in Pontefract in the UK. She grew up in Africa—calling Zimbabwe and South Africa home for a few years—before finally settling in Brisbane Australia, and raising four boys.


Before she started writing historical fiction, she was a freelance editor in the corporate world, which was definitely not half as exciting as writing rollicking romantic adventures. Her characters are fearless seafarers, even though in real life Emma gets disastrously sea sick.


Discerning Grace, is the first book in The White Sails Series. To join the crew—subscribe to Emma's newsletter:
