Author Biography - Rafael Sabatini
Rafael Sabatini was born to an English mother and Italian father, both well-known opera singers. At age 17 Sabatini moved to England, where, after a brief stint in the business world, he started to write. His major breakthrough came with Scaramouche, which became an international bestseller and was followed by the equally successful Captain Blood. All his earlier books were then rushed into reprint. Many of his novels were subsequently adapted into classic films, which appealed to both a male and female market with their drama, romance and action, set against a variety of historical settings.
