About Ken Follett

The international number one bestseller Ken Follett has published over thirty books in a career spanning more than forty years. Ken was just twenty-seven when he wrote the award-winning thriller Eye of the Needle, which became an international success, but he surprised everyone in 1989 with The Pillars of the Earth. This story about the building of a cathedral in the Middle Ages continues to captivate millions of readers all over the world, and was voted into the top 100 of Britain's best-loved books in the BBC's The Big Read. Married to Barbara Follett, the former Labour Member of Parliament for Stevenage, Ken and his family live in a rambling rectory in Hertfordshire and also spend time in London and Antigua. An ardent admirer of the theatre, Ken is often seen at productions of Shakespeare's plays when not indulging his passions for writing and playing bass guitar.
