Born in Chicago, Frederic Raphael moved to England as a boy and his father advised him to grow up to be 'an English gentleman' rather than 'an American Jew'.  His first glittering prize was winning a scholarship to Cambridge, followed by an Oscar and general recognition for his witty scripts for television and the silver screen. Writing was always his way to right the wrongs he had suffered. He is loved for his fast paced novels and sparkling humour.
