Colin is the best selling author of many historical and crime novels. His work has been translated into sixteen languages. As Mark D'Arbanville he also wrote The Naked Husband and The Naked Heart. He also published four books for teenagers under his real name - Colin Bowles. At least he thinks that's his real name. He's no longer sure. He travels widely to research his books, which in the last two years has led him to running with the bulls in Pamplona, cage shark diving in South Africa chasing tornadoes in Kansas and searching out black witches in Mexico. Colin is also the father of two phenomenal young women.
