Larry Jeram-Croft spent thirty years in the Royal Navy as a pilot and engineer. He then retired to work in industry for seven years before retiring for a second time. At that point he and his wife bought a yacht and went to live in the Caribbean. It was this experience that led to the idea for his first book.
Brought up on the books of C S Forester and Patrick O'Brien he was surprised that no one was writing similar stories about the modern Royal Navy, especially with so much going in in previous decades. As he was himself a Lynx helicopter pilot during the Falklands War, he decided to start there, using his own extensive knowledge of the conflict.
Larry now lives near Plymouth in Devon and spends most of his time writing and playing golf extraordinarily badly.
