Product description

About the Author

OLIVER GREEVES, a direct descendent of Fanny Nelson, lives in Sydney. He is a historian and sailor who spent many years working on Wall Street. He is currently working on a follow-on novel about Josiah Nisbet, Nelson's stepson. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"Ruthless in battle, Nelson was ruthless to friends and family. Strongly recommended. Even for Nelson fans."

John Gilbert - The Naval Review


Nelson's Folly is a compelling, vividly portrayed tale that is well grounded in a sense of the changing times, yet also nicely rooted in memorable characters. Historical novel and political history readers, as well as general-interest readers who enjoy stories of British society in 18th century England, will find it an accessible, thoroughly involving saga rich in psychological, political, and social inspection."

Diane Donovan - Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review, USA.

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Oliver Greeves is a Sydney-based writer of historical novels about the French Revolutionary Wars and the Napoleonic War. He is a direct descendent of Francis, Viscountess Nelson and her son, Josiah Nisbet. Family lore and family memorabilia have long played a part in his love for his subject matter. Oliver has a PhD in history from Bristol University in the United Kingdom and studied creative writing at the New School in Greenwich Village New York. He lived in New York for many years, working for Wall Street financial institutions at senior levels and was a founding partner of Pharos Institute, a leadership and executive coaching company. His understanding of institutions and the psychological perspective of those leading them infuses his novels with realism.

Oliver has been an enthusiastic sailor for over forty years, owning many sailing craft and having raced yachts and sailboats in seas off the North East Coast of the United States and the South China Sea. Oliver raced his yacht, "Quambi" on Sydney Harbour until recently.

His feel for the sea is apparent in his work. Oliver believes in the importance of truth telling in historical fiction as well as the importance of maintaining suspense. His first novel, Nelson's Folly, attacks the myth-making behind one of history's greatest legends, offering a fresh insight into the lives of Horatio Nelson and his devoted wife Fanny - and is a thrilling story of sacrifice, betrayal, and survival.

To find out more about Oliver, his journey as an author and to share insights on the life and times of Lord and Lady Nelson, visit Oliver's website www.fannynelsonfan.com and read his blog.
