Nigel Curtis was born in London, England. Met his American wife on a wine tour in California, and now lives in Pennsylvania. He has worked in London, Dublin and New York in the insurance industry. He was co-editor and contributor to an insurance periodical and has published numerous articles for trade magazines in Europe, Asia and North America. 'No Certainty, No Peace' is his first novel. History fascinates me, in particular, how extraordinary events impact ordinary people. I hope you enjoy reading my novel as much as I enjoyed researching and writing it.
