Nick Pengelley Nick Pengelley lives in Mississauga, Canada with his wife and two sons. He has had a varied career as a law librarian and law professor (specializing in international commercial arbitration) in Australia, Canada and the U.K. He has also worked as an analyst for a major Canadian NGO that focuses on the culture and politics of the Middle East, a field about which he is passionate. He is currently a consultant on Australasian law.

Nick cites many influences on his writing. Readers of "Ryder" will not be surprised that authors like H. Rider Haggard, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, John Buchan and Peter O'Donnell figure prominently. He is a fan of the ripping yarns of the inter-war years - by writers such as Sapper, Dornford Yates, Edgar Wallace and Leslie Charteris.

His more modern favourites include Umberto Eco (particularly "The Name of the Rose"), Alan Furst, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman and Elizabeth Kostova ("The Historian"). Nicholas reads a "book or so" a week (and is horrified to think that, if he lives to be 200, he may only get to read 10,000). These days, although he still reads fiction, he is mainly interested in modern European and Middle Eastern history, and biography, having discovered some years ago that truth really is stranger than fiction. He lists his heroes, literary adventurers all, as Winston Churchill, T.E. Lawrence, Gertrude Bell and Teddy Roosevelt.
