Richard Woodman qualified as a navigating officer with Blue Funnel serving in cargo-liners trading principally to the Far East, before joining Trinity House in 1967 working on Corporation's lighthouse tenders. After 31 years at sea he now works in operations management. His first historical novel was published by John Murray in 1981. Since then his popular Nathaniel Drinkwater series has grown to twelve volumes. Along with six other novels Richard has also produced a number of highly successful non-fiction titles including View from the Sea (1985) and the widely acclaimed Arctic Convoys (John Murray, 1994). In 2001 he was awarded the Desmond Wettern Maritime Media Award for his contributions to maritime history.
