Angus Donald (born 1965 in China[2]) is a British writer of historical fiction. As of the start of 2015, he has released six books that loosely follow the story of Alan-a-Dale, and others in the series are in prospect.


Donald's parents being British diplomats, much of his childhood was spent in various places around the world, including Greece, Hong Kong, Zaire and Indonesia.[3] After graduating from the University of Edinburgh, Donald worked as a fruit-picker in Greece, a waiter in New York and as an "anthropologist studying magic and witchcraft" in Indonesia.[2][3] He subsequently worked as a journalist in Hong Kong, New Delhi, Pakistan, Islamabad and Afghanistan before attempting to write his first novel.[3][4][5]
