After Cambridge, Lewis Page became a Royal Navy officer. Highlights included active duty afloat, ashore and underwater as a demolitions and bomb-disposal operator; winning the green beret of the Commandos; and personally rendering safe a number of WMDs not long after the invasion of Iraq. Sadly, this was in Wales.
On leaving the service, he wrote Lions, Donkeys and Dinosaurs: after which Sir Max Hastings said "I hope that [Page] soon gets the job he deserves, as defence correspondent in the national media". Instead he took a job at the now legendary tech tabloid The Register and in due course rose to become the site's editor. Under his editorship the Register - among many other triumphs - revealed the location of GCHQ's secret submarine-cable tapping base in the Middle East.
Lewis Page is now writing a sequel to Lions, Donkeys and Dinosaurs - and has finally published his specwar-and-pirates novel, BLACK FLAG, on Kindle. In his leisure time he enjoys flying, most forms of messing about in boats, mountain walking, cycling, gadgets, history, science fiction and dry martinis.
