Robin Scott-Elliot

Robin Scott-Elliot has been a sports journalist for over 25 years with the BBC, ITV, the Sunday Times, the Independent and ‘i’, covering every sport you can think of and a few you probably can’t. The highlight was the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics; the lowlight turning up at the wrong stadium to cover Scotland’s football team.

Finding Treasure Island will be his fourth historical-fiction novel after The Tzar’s Curious Runaways, The Acrobats of Agra and Hide and Seek.

He lives in Helensburgh with his wife and two daughters, and a dog, a cat, a rabbit and a guinea pig.
