Some people make a career change; Damien Lewis made a career leap.
An accidental author, Damien had spent over twenty years reporting from, and writing about, conflict zones across the world; he only penned his first book when a publisher asked if he would want to commit the TV documentary he was making to paper.
Between 1991 and 2005 Lewis wrote, directed and filmed several highly regarded documentary films for many broadcasters including National Geographic, the BBC, Channel 4 and Discovery.
Focusing on war, espionage and military operations, this Sunday Times bestselling author’s works are grotesque, glorious, and mesmerising; in 2006 he was chosen as one of the “Nation’s Twenty Favourite Authors” by the UK Government’s Quick Reads Initiative.
His novels SAS Italian Job and SAS Shadow Raiders take their readers into the depths of top-secret missions during the height of WWII.
