Jeffrey Archer has topped the bestseller lists around the world, with sales of over

275 million copies in 115 countries and 49 languages. He is the only author ever to have been a number one bestseller in fiction (nineteen times), short stories (four times) and non-fiction.

He gained a Blue in Athletics at Oxford, was President of the University Athletics Club, and went on to run the 100 yards in 9.6 seconds for Great Britain in 1966. Jeffrey has served five years in the House of Commons and thirty-one years as a Member of the House of Lords.

His latest novel, Next in Line, is the fifth of the William Warwick novels and was published in paperback this month. The sixth in the series, Traitors Gate, will be out in September.

Jeffrey is an art collector and amateur auctioneer, conducting around 10 charity auctions a year, and has raised over £51m in the last 30 years for good causes.

He has been married to Dame Mary Archer DBE, Chair of the Science Museum Group, for 55 years, and they have two sons, two granddaughters and three grandsons.
