Rory Clements is a published author of fiction. He is a best-selling author that has won the 2018 CWA Historical Dagger for his novel Nucleus.

Besides being an author, Rory Clements has also worked in newspapers. He has had a long and successful career working in the newspaper business and has been a features editor as well as an associate editor of Today. He has also worked for the Daily Mail as the editor of their Good Health Pages, and at the Evening Standard as the editor of the health section. Currently he now devotes his time to writing full-time from his base of Norfolk, England.

The author is the first to admit that he has a passion when it comes to thrillers. Rory says that he loves reading about men and women that face up to the ultimate test while they are under fire. This extends to enjoying writing about them, something that Rory chalks up to probably being in his blood.

Rory was born in Dover, Kent, but says that he was raised in different outposts all over the world since his father was serving in the Royal Navy. The author says that he grew up ‘hungry’ to be a writer. He worked himself as a newspaper journalist, but even while doing that, he always had dreams of switching over to writing novels. He moved to Norfolk in 2007 and says that he found the ‘perfect’ spot to achieve his ambition of writing novels. He says that he has to have time and space to think, chat, and imagine.

As to why he chose to write thrillers, the author says that it might have something to do with his family history. Rory says that his generation of the Clements family is the first since the Crimean War to have not been in active service in some branch of the military, and he says that he feels fortunate that this is the case. His father, grandfather, and great-grandfather participated in three major wars and were able to survive the fighting, but Rory fears that in the same place or situation that he may not have measured up. He says that psychoanalysts might wonder whether he’s trying to compensate for this fact by making stories that revolve around those that have more courage than he does, and he says that in this case that they would potentially have a point.

Regardless, Rory thinks that his personal history has given him a good understanding not only of valor but of the stoicism of those who are in danger, whether it is from enemy agents sin the sea, air, or on the battlefield. He says that these are the qualities of the protagonist of the Tom Wilde series, none other than Tom Wilde. The Cambridge history professor might spend a good portion of his life absorbed in the dusty archives or teaching students in the lecture hall, but when he is called upon to act, he does without hesitation or questioning it.
