About the author

Robert Stephen Parry

A quick word about me - I am a UK writer of British historical fiction, with interests in a wide range of time periods, from Tudor & Elizabethan, through 18th-century Georgian, right up to the era of Victorian England and the Belle Époque. I have been writing stories for many years but my first novel was not released until 2009. Since then, five more have followed in fairly quick succession, my latest being 'The Testament of Sophie Dawes,' a neo-Victorian novel which came out in March of this year.

I believe stories are a great way to help people discover and understand history. And if the narrative can be entertaining at the same time, even better.


Authentic and vivid historical settings combine with unusual elements of mystery, romance and ‘magical realism.’

“Parry is a word smith. His ability to extract his own perceptions of the past and present them in a novel in fantastical manner … is ingenious.”
