Meet the Author

Nicholas Monsarrat was born in Liverpool and educated at Cambridge University, where he studied law. His career as a solicitor encountered a swift end when he decided to leave Liverpool for London, with a half-finished manuscript under his arm and only forty pounds in his pocket.

His first book to attract attention was the largely autobiographical 'This is the Schoolroom', which was concerned with the turbulent thirties, and a student at Cambridge who goes off to fight against the fascists in Spain only to discover that life itself is the real schoolroom.

During World War II he joined the Royal Navy and served in corvettes. His war experiences provided the framework for the novel 'HMS Marlborough will enter Harbour', which is one of his best known books, along with 'The Cruel Sea'. The latter was made into a classic film starring Jack Hawkins. Established as a top name writer, Monsarrat's career concluded with 'The Master Mariner', a historical novel of epic proportions the final part of which was both finished (using his notes) and published posthumously.

Well known for his concise story telling and tense narrative on a wide range of subjects, although nonetheless famous for those connected with the sea and war, he became one of the most successful novelists of the twentieth century, whose rich and varied collection bears the hallmarks of a truly gifted writer.

The Daily Telegraph summed him up thus: 'A professional who gives us our money's worth. The entertainment value is high'.

    A New Dawn

    A New Dawn

    Chapter Thirteen
    I tear into the dead moose, and chew. Hunting is great, even though it's winter. Wolves squeeze in around me to have a taste of moose, but I don't mind. Sharing is part of pack life.
    "Scoot, Rune!" A gray wolf says, nudging me over with his muzzle and laying beside me. He bites off a piece of moose.
    "Someone's a hungry guy, huh?" I tease.
    "So-rry!" He mutters jokingly.
    "Calm down, Aryo."
    "Well, EXCUUUSE me!" He barks.
    I laugh lightly and chew on my meal.
    "Pack, gather!" Calls the pack leader, Sorlit. We look up and reluctantly abandon our lunch to gather beneath him. He's sitting on a rock pile, atop which is his roomy den.
    "We have some visitors who have come to gather the Chosen one of the Wolf Kingdom." Sorlit steps aside to reveal a black bear, a gray dragon with blue-green wings, and a gray raccoon.
    The bear's round, dark eyes fall on me. I shrink away, my black fur prickling. My silver eyes narrow. The bear whispers something to Sorlit.
    "Rune!" My leader barks after the bear finishing. "I guess you are the Chosen."
    "M-me? Why?" I growl, shooting a look at the bear.
    "Ulik here believes you are." Is the only explanation I get.
    "A bear!? What!? You listen to a BEAR!?" I lash my tail and curl my lip to reveal my sharp teeth.
    "He is CHOSEN, Rune! I am not, and you have no choice!" Sorlit snaps.
    I stare, frozen. This can't be happening....
    "It's okay, Rune." Aryo whispers. "I'll see you soon."
    I get the feeling I won't be seeing him soon. Or ever, maybe.
