Terence Strong

Terence Strong spent his childhood in post-war south London. Inspired by the likes of Biggles, Hemingway and Ian Fleming, his heart became set on becoming a foreign correspondent and thriller writer. He completed his first full-length novel at sixteen but decided it wasn't good enough and settled down to regular employment. His second novel met the same fate as his first, but his third was published in 1982 and he has continued writing bestsellers ever since.
