Alaric Bond

Alaric_2Alaric Bond has been writing professionally for over twenty years with work covering broadcast comedy, periodicals, children’s stories, television and the stage. His “Fighting Sail” series of novels, set during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, differer slightly from the standard formula of the “hero who becomes an admiral”. Instead they chart the course of several characters, from both lower deck and commissioned ranks, and give a dramatic and authentic insight into life aboard a man of war during the age of sail.

Major influences in Bond’s writing include Nicholas Monsarrat, C. S. Forester and John Wyndham.
