Conor Kostick

Hi, thanks for your interest in my books. Perhaps you want to know more about my background as a historian, or perhaps you are more interested in my fantasy fiction. To some extent both types of writing have their roots in the fact that I grew up in Chester, a walled city full of the remains of its Roman and Medieval past.
At nineteen I was lucky enough to get work in the world's first commericial live role-playing game, Treasure Trap, based in Peckforton Castle, Cheshire. At that time the great miners' strike of 1984-5 shook every nook and cranny of the country, including the secluded castle, and I found myself drawn from a world of fantasy into a world of class conflict and intense political debate. For many years after, I moved from major city to major city in the UK pausing only in Doncaster to work in a large tractor factory (Case International) to earn enough for my first computer and to start writing.
My dad is from Dublin and having always enjoyed my visits there it was often in my mind to move to Ireland. By a quirk of fate I've ended up living not too far from his family home (my grandparents were Jewish emmigrants from Poland and settled in a Corporation house in Cabra).
I enjoy writing both history and fiction, although I find the writing experience very different. So much so that I feel refreshed when moving from one to the other. If my most recent publication was a work of history, it will be safe to assume that I am now working on a novel and vice versa!
