John Drake trained as a biochemist—before realizing he wasn’t much good at science—and worked as an anchorman for PharmaVision, a live-TV broadcast service produced by ICI Pharmaceuticals, before leaving to write full-time in 1999. His hobbies and interests include muzzle-loaded shooting, history and politics. Flint and Silver was inspired by the many unanswered questions left in Robert Louis Stevenson’s much-loved classic, Treasure Island.
