John K. Fulton is the son of a lighthouse keeper, and grew up all around the coast of Scotland. These remote and lonely locations instilled in him a life-long love of books and the sea. He studied at the Universities of St. Andrews and Dundee, and now lives in Leicester with his partner Sandra. While Leicester is about as far from the sea as you can get in the UK, their home is stuffed with books, which is the next-best thing.
His latest book, The Beast on the Broch, is an adventure set in Pictish times, featuring Picts, Dalriadans, Vikings, and the mythical Pictish Beast. It was published by Cranachan in September 2016.
His first book, The Wreck of the Argyll, is a First World War spy adventure set in Dundee in 1915, and won the Great War Dundee Children’s Book Prize Competition in March 2015. It was published by Cargo Publishing in September 2015.
