Lord Byron

Lord Byron may be the greatest writer you've never read.


He was also Britain's most glamorous and most tortured writer. He was rich and handsome. He was a swimmer and a poet. He loved both sexes. In his work he managed to make a queer love life thrilling and universal.


He was born with a deformed right foot. An emotional hurt dating back to abuse when he was a boy also affected the man he became. But his hand moved on the page and his body in the water with ease and assurance. His is the story of transcending his disability and his childhood trauma in his verse.


Byron's biography may shine a spotlight on your story too. The disappointments he felt in love, as well as the personal transformation he achieved in his work will strike a chord with anyone who is a reader, a writer, or a lover.


Swimming with Lord Byron: A Biography, is available in a single ebook, or you can also begin by dipping your toe in the first of four short ebooks. Hardcover and paperback formats are also available.


You can find brief cellphone videos of people reading some of Byron's memorable lines. Take at look at them on my YouTube Channel.



"Swimming with Lord Byron's easy, conversational style and its earnest reverence for its subject make it an endearing and at times uplifting read ... It may well fulfill its aim of introducing new readers to Byron's work."  –Corin Throsby in the Times Literary Supplement
