About the author

Nigel Holloway

Part time computer consultant, actor, musician, singer, sound engineer and video editor, ex-maths lecturer and ex-radio presenter, Nigel lives and writes in Cardiff in Wales – only a few miles from where Henry Morgan was born.

So far, Nigel has concentrated mainly on writing for the stage, and to date, thirteen of his plays have been published, with performances taking place as far afield as Australia - and Hull.  A number of his shorter plays have also been recorded as podcasts, and are available to download.  To find out more about his works for the stage, visit www.off-the-wall-plays.co.uk.

Nigel has also written two musical adaptations, based on the music of Sir Arthur Sullivan:  A Savoy Christmas Carol, based on Dickens' timeless classic (for more details go to www.xmas-carol.co.uk), and The Savoy Beggar's Opera, based on the original musical play by John Gay (more information at the Savoy Beggar's opera website.)

He remains fascinated by finding intriguing 'holes in history' - questions about particular people and events which are not answered by the existing historical record.  Much of his work seeks to fill these 'holes' with explanations which fit (most of the time) with the known facts of the events in question

Because of the scarcity of accepted facts about some of the main characters in this story, Nigel found writing The damning of Henry Morgan a hugely enjoyable and exhilarating experience.

Nigel's second novel, Scartato, is also available from Amazon Kindle by clicking on this link.  For more details, visit the Scartato website.

His third novel, Second Death, is also available from Amazon Kindle.

He is currently working on editing his fourth novel, entitled Bard Boy, and composing his second musical version of The Beggar's Opera (this time a rock opera called The Beggar's Rock Opera!) in collaboration with his fellow musicians who perform under the name Perfect Recall

He is also currently researching a sequel to his novel, 'Second Death'.
