Felix Francis is the younger of Dick Francis’s two sons. During the last 40 years Felix assisted with the research of many of the Dick Francis novels, not least TWICE SHY, SHATTERED and UNDER ORDERS. Since 2006, Felix has taken a more significant role in the writing, first with DEAD HEAT and then increasingly with the bestsellers SILKS, EVEN MONEY and CROSSFIRE, all father-son collaborations. He continued his father’s legacy with DICK FRANCIS'S GAMBLE and DICK FRANCIS'S BLOODLINE. He lives in England.
