Antony was born in London in 1970. Even as a child he always dreamed of becoming a published author and started to write a book. But, having watched the film ‘Top Gun,’ he was swayed into a becoming a military pilot. After no more than a glancing-blow of a career in the British Royal Air Force he became a commercial pilot, and he remains thus to this day. Prompted by the death of his mother to early onset dementia and his experiences in the RAF, Antony returned to writing. Additional inspirations for his writing include a kidnapping incident in Kazakhstan, a shooting in Ghana and being struck by lightning.

Having failed miserably with every New Year’s resolution that involved diets, one year, Helen Bridgett set herself a completely different goal – to write a novel and give it to her family as a Christmas present. Although she acknowledges they probably would have preferred home-made jam, the novel was written and she caught the writing bug.
Her first novel, The Mercury Travel Club features laugh-out-loud characters who took on a life of their own resulting in the sequel, The Heat is On. She loves nothing more than a night out and banter with friends; Helen had previously studied Scriptwriting and her love of dialogue feeds into her work so writing has given her the perfect excuse to eavesdrop on conversations. Helen lives in the North East with her husband and their chocolate Labrador. All three can often be found wandering the beautiful Northumberland coastline or in country pubs.
