Bernard Cornwell was born in London in 1944 - a 'warbaby' - whose dad was mother and a Canadian airman from Britain's Women's Auxiliary Air Force. He was adopted by a household in Essex who belonged to a religious sect called the Peculiar Folks (and they were), but escaped at London University and, following a stint as a teacher, he joined BBC Television where he labored for the subsequent 10 years. He finished as Head of Current Affairs Television for the BBC in Northern Ireland also began as a researcher. It was while working in Belfast that he fell in love, and met a visiting American, Judy. Judy was unable so Bernard went to the States where he was refused a Green Card to proceed to Britain for family reasons. He chose to make a living by writing, a project which did not need a permit from the US government - and for a few years he had been wanting to write the experiences of a British soldier in the Napoleonic wars - and therefore the Sharpe series has been created. Bernard and Judy married in 1980, remain married, still reside in the States and he is composing Sharpe.
