Iain Manson's first book, The Lion and the Eagle, tells the story of the 1860 prize fight between British champion Tom Sayers and his American counterpart John Heenan. Published in 2008, it was well received by the critics.
Manson's journalism, mostly written under the pen name of Simon Craig, has appeared in many national publications on both sides of the Atlantic.
Having worked abroad for many years, he now lives in west London.
