I have written several books, mostly recently THE WORLD OF POLDARK – The Official Companion to the BBC Television series (Macmillan 2015). This comprised behind-the-scene information on the making of the series, interviews with the cast and crew, and background on the history of eighteenth-century Cornwall/England.  I have also written several popular history books, from A History of the World in Numbers to part of the bestselling series I Used to Know That – History. I also co-wrote Boys and Girls – A Ladybird Book of Childhood and have written and contributed to a variety of children’s books.
