Chris Cherry was born in London, England, but grew up in Lincolnshire. Apart from writing his novels, he is also a passionate motorcyclist. A member of the Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists, he travels frequently to the Battlefields of Europe to research his books thoroughly and to meet the families and descendents of soldiers and civilians caught up in the Great War. Amongst other interests, he is also a volunteer rider with the North West Blood Bikes in Manchester. Donations from some of his work will be made to the Royal British Legion in the UK and Poppy Scotland.
