Meet the Author

William (Bill) Norris has been a professional writer since joining his local newspaper as an apprentice reporter at the age of 16. After working for a variety of newspapers in England and Africa, he was appointed Parliamentary Correspondent to the prestigious Times (of London) ten years later - one of the youngest ever to gain this position. He held the post for seven years, revolutionising the art of the "parliamentary sketch", then transferred to become Africa Correspondent for The Times, covering political events and wars in Biafra, Nigeria, Angola, the Congo, Mozambique, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

Growing tired of being shot at - this was long before the days of flak jackets, helmets and danger money for reporters, he moved to ITN as Political Correspondent in 1968, and also covered numerous overseas assignments including the Paris riots of that year.

After turning freelance in 1980, Norris moved to the United States where he worked under contract for The Times and other publications for 13 years.
