About Anthony Riches

Anthony Riches, coming from a family with three generations of army service, has always been fascinated by military history, psychology and weaponry - which led him to write the Empire series set in ancient Rome. The idea for his first contemporary thriller, Nemesis, came to him under the influence of jetlag at two in the morning in a Brisbane hotel room. He lives in rural Suffolk with his wife, two dogs the size of ponies and a bad tempered cat. @AnthonyRiches
