The Series


Anthony Riches
My interest in all things military led me to a degree in military history and psychology (and Russian language), and a long standing desire to write led to the Empire series which has now reached the twelve volume point with several more to come.

A chance discussion with a royal protection officer – and jet lag in Australia – led more recently to the Protector series of modern thrillers.

I live in Suffolk with two Belgian cow herding dogs and a bad tempered cat, and my wonderful wife of 37 years.
