Bøger af Bernard Cornwell

Bernard Cornwell (f. 1944) blev født i London. Han var et krigsbarn med canadisk far og engelsk mor, og efter sin fødsel blev han bortadopteret til en adoptivfamilie i Essex. Familien var medlemmer af sekten Peculiar People. Cornwell forlod sekten for at studere på universitetet i London. Efter at have arbejdet som lærer, fik han arbejde ved BBC Television, hvor han arbejdede i 10 år. Han startede ved BBC som researcher og efter 10 år var han Head of Current Affairs Television for afdelingen i Nordirland. Det var da han arbejdede i Belfast, at Bernard Cornwell mødte og forelskede sig i amerikanske Judy. Da Judy ikke kunne flytte til Storbritannien, og Bernard ikke kunne få et indflytningstilladelse i USA, så det mørkt ud for parret, men det fandt han en løsning på: at blive forfatter. Som forfatter behøver man nemlig ikke en arbejdstilladelse. Parret blev gift i 1980 og bor stadig i USA. Tanken om at skrive en britisk soldats oplevelser i Napoleonkrigene havde strejfet ham tidligere og pludselig var serien om Sharpe en virkelighed. Han har siden skrevet en række populære serier – bogserien ’Saksernes fortællinger’ er f.eks. blevet adapteret til TV serien The Last Kingdom – ligesom han også har skrevet en række enkeltstående bøger. Bernard Cornwell har beskrevet starten på sin forfatterkarriere som ren desperation, men i dag, mere end 30 år senere, har han på solgt over 20 millioner eksemplarer i verden. Han er kendt som en af verdens bedste forfattere af historiske romaner, og han har modtaget en OBE for sine bedrifter.
