About the author. Historical novelist Robert Stephen Parry

Writer of Tudor, Georgian and Victorian-themed novels.

Briefly ... I'm a UK writer of adult historical fiction, with interests in a wide range of time periods, from Tudor & Elizabethan, through 18th-century Georgian, right up to the era of Victorian England and the Belle Époque.

I believe historical fiction is a great way to discover the treasures of the past and to explore all the different ways that people can be. Even better if the narrative can be entertaining at the same time - well-researched historical settings, in which comedic elements are never entirely consumed by misfortune.


Where to buy ...


For those who like to shop on Amazon, you can find all of my titles here, available in paperback and Kindle, and for those who don't, you can find them, as eBooks, via Kobo or the Barnes & Noble Nook.


Bookshops and libraries will order them if you ask nicely. And The Book Depository is usually good value for posting paperbacks to anywhere in the world. For Apple users, meanwhile, all titles are available directly from the Apple Store or via the Amazon Kindle app.


Here is a link to my blog, Endymion where I occasionally post articles and observations on the arts, on writing and gardening - or whatever else takes my fancy. It reached its ten-year mark in 2020.

News and contact

I don't do mailshots or newsletters or anything like that, but the Updates page on this website has all the latest info' regarding current and future writing projects - along with the occasional special offer. You can also follow me via my amazon author page or even my Facebook page. A year rarely goes by in which I do not post something there at least once or twice. As for Twitter, I regret to say my account there has also long-since succumbed to terminal neglect. For trade enquiries, email srochscommunique at outlook dot com.

Finally, should this attempt at providing biographical information appear still to be incomplete, here is a handy guide to what’s in (and what’s not in) each of my novels.
