David Coles had the original idea for The Back of Beyond. He had always loved the character Cadfael and fancied creating a similar roving, crime-solving clergy with a little more humor. He lives near Leeds in W. Yorkshire, England and has formed a partnership with Jack which has lasted many years. He is a member of the Historical Society, has attended writing workshops run by Terry Pratchett and the late David Gemmel. His passion is Sci/Fi but is just as happy writing historicals, Medieval Mysteries and crime thrillers.
. He designs and builds websites Jack Everett lives in rural Yorkshire, England. He kept two Alsatians - German shepherds--until they died and rather than suffer that grief again now has an orphaned cat named Meaow that more or less pleases itself what it does. He grows vegetables- allowing his wife to grow the flowers. Despite this he still makes time to write and has six books in print and four e-books. He has three further books in various stages of production. He is a member of The Society of Authors-UK, The Authors' Society-USA, and International Thriller Writers.
