About War Lord
Torn between loyalty and sworn oaths, the warrior king Lord Uhtred of Bebbanburg faces his greatest ever battle – and prepares for his ultimate fate…
Bernard Cornwell was born in London in 1944. He was a ‘warbaby’. His father was a Canadian airman and his mother was in Britain’s Women’s Auxiliary Air Force.
So, he was adopted by a family in Essex who belonged to a religious sect called the Peculiar People (and they were). Then he escaped to London University and, after a stint as a teacher, he joined BBC Television, where he worked for the next 10 years.
He began as a researcher on the Nationwide programme and ended as Head of Current Affairs Television for the BBC in Northern Ireland. It was while working in Belfast that he met Judy, a visiting American, and fell in love. However, Judy was unable to move to Britain for family reasons. So, Bernard went to the States where he was refused a Green Card. He decided to earn a living by writing, a job that did not need a permit from the US government – and for some years he had been wanting to write the adventures of a British soldier in the Napoleonic wars – and so the Sharpe series was born. Bernard and Judy married in 1980, are still married, still live in the States and he is still writing Sharpe.
