Author Biography - Paul Crooks
Paul Crooks was born a stone's throw from Wembley Football Stadium and lives in London. He started searching for his African slave ancestors after being told it was not possible and it took him eleven years of research to trace them. Arcadia was pleased to publish the product of his labour, Ancestors, a fictionalised account of his great-great-great grandfather's part in the struggle for emancipation from 1798 to 1838.
