John Watson specialises in marine adventure tales. His first novel, The Iron Man, was followed up by The Final Act. Both novels feature battleships with which he remains fascinated and is currently working hard to produce a follow-up in the same marine genre.

He also writes under the name John Wilding. Cardinal Sin, his first under this name, is a gripping conspiracy thriller surrounding the election of a new Pope within the Catholic church.

John combines writing novels with a successful career in the marketing industry. He lives in Sussex with his wife and two children.
