Meet the Author

Alfred Edward Wooley Mason was born in 1865. He was educated at Dulwich College before going up to Oxford University. Once his formal education was completed, Mason went on to become an actor, which had been an ambition since schooldays.

He began his writing career with historical fiction, but then moved into the arena of politics, becoming a Liberal Member of Parliament for Coventry in 1906. However, his love of writing stayed with him and Mason further developed his repertoire and style to incorporate detective fiction, introducing one of the earliest fictional detectives, Inspector Hanaud, the Gallic counterpart to Sherlock Holmes. His detective fiction contains material clues and spontaneity.

Throughout the course of his life Mason produced over thirty titles. The most enduring work is ‘The Four Feathers’ which is the most filmed work of any writer in the 20th century, with seven versions in all. There have also been many other films and plays based on his novels, including the Hanaud series.

A.E.W. Mason died in 1948.

It had taken me a long while to finally finish my food, I hated McDonalds but what else was there when your in the middle of nowhere, with only one fast food place and a gas station yeah pretty hard. <p> My parents were busy talking to some guy getting tips on the best ways to get to Alaska, "Meh," i mumbled tapping on the window indicating they needed to shut up before i went insane. <p> "Mom! Dad shut up!" <br> Clarity hold on! They yelled <p> I gave them the finger rubbing my face, looking at the rip in my jeans picking at it. I hate this but you need to do what can, nobody ever said it was going to be easy. My dad slid into the drivers seat and pulled out heading down the busy highway. I blasted my earbuds not wanting to listen to them. I finally fell asleep, not caring where we were. <p> Several hours later my mom was nudging me awake. We were at a Hotel. I blinked and stumbled inside still very tired i ended up asleep on the lobby floor. <p> Continud tomrrow
