E V Thompson RIP

Author EV Thompson, who sold more than five million books, has died at his home in Cornwall, his family has confirmed.

The 81-year-old author published about 40 historical novels, most of them set in Cornwall.
He was appointed an MBE in the most recent New Year's Honours list and was also a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd.

Publisher Robert Hale said it was with the "greatest regret" that staff had learnt of his death.

The company said: "He was a friendly, agreeable and likeable person who had the gift of getting on with everyone he met.

"He was a publishers' dream author, not just because of what he wrote, but his efforts to promote and sell his books which he was doing to the end with great success.
