Anton Gill (born 22 October 1948) is an English writer. He also publishes under three pseudonyms: Oliver Bowden, Antony Cutler, and Ray Evans.[1]

Conception life[edit]

Gill was born in Ilford, Essex, the son of a German father and an English mother, and grew up in London. He was educated at Chigwell School and Clare College, Cambridge,[2] and worked as an actor and as a director in the theatre (especially at the Royal Court Theatre in London), for the Arts Council, and for the BBC and TV-am (as writer and producer) before turning to full-time writing.[1]


He has been a full-time professional writer since 1984, and since then he has published over 35 books, on a variety of ancient and contemporary historical subjects, including three biographies. His work includes both fiction and non-fiction, where his special field is contemporary European history. In fiction, he has written a series of Egyptian Mysteries, featuring the world's first private eye, the scribe, Huy, which have been published worldwide. More recently, he published The Sacred Scroll, a history-mystery, with Penguin. He is also the author of two biographies, on William Dampier, and Peggy Guggenheim. His most recent titles are the novels: City of Gold (Penguin) and The Accursed (Piatkus).

Under Oliver Bowden, he has written eight novels based on the Assassin's Creed series: Assassin's Creed: Renaissance, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Assassin's Creed: Forsaken, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, Assassin's Creed:Unity and Assassin's Creed: Underworld. He himself played the games first and wrote novels about them later.
