Message from john pearson

"My time working with Ian Fleming writing the Atticus column on The Sunday Times was my springboard to becoming a writer. Early on I published my breakthrough novel, Gone to Timbuctoo. Over the course of my career, I have written biographies about many iconic figures including Winston Churchill and his family, Donald Campbell, the Getty family, the Sitwells, Lord Lucan and his set, the Spencer Family, the enigmatic Ian Fleming himself and, of course, Ron and Reg Kray. You might be on this website having watched Tom Hardy's first-rate performance as both of the twins. I loved it myself and I'm confident that Ron and Reg would have too.  

I hope you enjoy perusing my website and please feel free to get in touch at
