Justin Newland was born in Essex,
England, three days before the end of 1953.

His love of literature began soon after,
with swashbuckling sea stories, pirates
and tales of adventure. Undeterred by
the award of a Doctorate in Mathematics from Imperial College, London, he worked in I.T. and later ran a hotel.

His taste in literature is eclectic: from literary fiction and fantasy, to science fiction,
with a special mention for the magical realists and the existentialists.

Along the way, he was wooed by the muses of history, both ancient and modern, and
then got happily lost in the labyrinths of mythology, religion and philosophy.

In 2006, he found his way to the creative keyboard and conceived his debut novel, The
Genes of Isis
(Matador, 2018), an epic fantasy set under Ancient Egyptian skies.

His second novel, The Old Dragon’s Head (Matador, 2018), is a tale of supernatural
intrigue played out in the shadows of the Great Wall of China.

He is currently working on a third novel, this one set in King Frederick the Great’s East
Prussia during the Enlightenment of the 1760’s. It speculates on an alternative genesis
of the Industrial Revolution.

His stories explore the zeitgeist of our times, the underlying narrative to every culture

and every nation.

He lives with his partner in plain sight of the Mendip Hills in Somerset, England.
