Mark Knowles read degrees in Classics and Management Studies at Downing College, Cambridge. After a decade working as a frontline officer and supervisor within the Metropolitan Police Service, he became Head of Classics at a school in Harrogate.

Book Synopsis: 
Rome, AD 205: Tribune Ambrosius Milo is the only man in his cohort who enjoys the night watch. Somewhere in the darkness is the man who murdered his wife, and one day he will catch him. But one cold February morning, the fog lifts to reveal the dead body of a young girl on the banks of the Tiber. Led by the quick-tempered Ambrosius, the watchmen track a grim murder scene and locate several seemingly vital clues. But there is trouble afoot, for this was no ordinary young girl. She is a consul’s daughter and, when her distraught parents come to claim her body, it has mysteriously vanished from the Watch House crypt … From the intrigues within the Imperial household to the mean streets of Ancient Rome, The Consul’s Daughter is a red-blooded crime novel based on true events and documented characters.

If you could write about anyone fiction/nonfiction who would you write about and why?
Any individual who is faced, ultimately alone, with making decisions at critical moments in history that could have catastrophic consequences: I’m interested in the psychology of people in these situations. The difficulty with this is that most of these famous characters have been written about exhaustively: prime ministers, presidents, military commanders. I have been batting about a fictional story involving Winston Churchill for a while, but my agent dissuaded me. Not ready to give up on that one just yet though…
