Robert Harris eBooks
Robert Harris was born on March 7, 1957 in Nottingham, England. Harris always seemed to have a passion for words. As a high school student he was involved in the school paper, and at Selwyn College in Cambridge he was the editor of the student paper Varsity.
After college, Harris began his career as a reporter for the BBC, working on news and current events for various BBC television programs. He worked there until 1987 when he accepted the position of political editor for The Observer. After that he often wrote columns for The Sunday Times and The Daily Telegraph.
Harris continued with his work, all the while writing several non-fiction novels that were published but without much fanfare. It wasn’t until his historical novel Fatherland was published that Harris could write full time. Fatherland sold a million copies and was turned into an HBO film in 1994. This wouldn’t be the last time one of Harris’s novels was produced for the screen. His next novel, Enigma, was also made into a movie and his next novel, Archangel, was adapted for a BBC mini-series in 2005.
Harris has gone on to write many more novels, and has worked with Roman Polanski for his novel Ghost. Harris now lives in Newbury, England with his wife Gill Hornby. They have four children.
