Biographies by Andrew Norman

"I choose to write biographies in an endeavour to resolve unexplained questions which have occurred to me in respect of the characters involved. Furthermore, I love the thought that my readers can choose to accompany me on my journey of discovery."

Subjects of intrigue include: Marilyn Monroe's premature death; Adolf Hitler's seemingly insane behaviour; Winston Churchill's irresponsible rashness; T. E. Lawrence's mental breakdown and unexplained death; Agatha Christie's mysterious disappearance; Jane Austen's unrequited love (being the first to discover, in her novel Persuasion, a clue linking Jane's 'Kellynch Hall' to the National Trust property Barrington Court, in Somerset, was most exciting for me!); Robert Mugabe's split personality; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's belief in fairies; Charles Darwin's evolutionary dilemma; how Enid Blyton was inspired in her writing by Dorset's Isle of Purbeck; how a blind man Sir Arthur Pearson, created St Dunstan's (now Blind Veterans UK) in order to help the blinded servicemen of the First World War (a subject of compelling interest at the present time); Thomas Hardy's problematic relationship with his first wife, Emma.
