Meet the Author

Long, long ago, before Twittering and Blogging and Facebooking - in fact way back in 1988 - Allen Makepeace retired from the post he had held for ten years as a Schools Inspector in south London. Prior to that he had been a comprehensive school head for thirteen years and before that... well, that's back in the mists of time.


Since his retirement Allen has written more than twenty non-fiction books on crime, disasters, the supernatural and superstitions. He has won several awards for writing including the South East Arts Prose Prize and he was a finalist in the Fenner Brockway Peace Prize for Literature. Most of his books have been traditionally published, the rest self-published. He has written two novels, 'And Such Great Names as These', winner of the NAWG Award for 'best novel', and 'Winter Hunt' and a collection of prize-winning short stories. 'Winter Hunt', a thriller set in the early nineteenth century reflects Allen's interest in the criminal history of England. This book has never appeared in traditional printed book format.


Seventy-five per cent of the profits of these two novels are to be donated to the British Limbless Ex-Servicemen's Association.


Allen Makepeace and his wife live at Eastbourne on the south coast of England.
