Best-selling author Nigel Cawthorne hits the bookstands this September with four new and diverse titles – busting his century with 80 books in his own right and major contributions to another 20 or more. His latest titles to launch are:

The Daughter of Heaven: The true story of the only woman to become Emperor of China, published by Oneworld, £16.99 (Launch: 13 September 2007)

Reaping the Whirlwind: Personal accounts of German and Japanese experiences of World War II, published by David & Charles, £14.99 (Launch: 30 September 2007)

The Mammoth Book of Killers at Large: The greatest unsolved cases of serial murder, published by Constable & Robinson, £7.99 (Launch: 30 August 2007)

Heroes: Winners of the Victoria Cross since 1945, from John Blake Publishing, £7.99 (Launch 3 September 2007)

The first three are coming out simultaneously in the US.

Prolific writing machine Nigel Cawthorne has churned out books on just about every topic imaginable – from American veterans Missing In Action to the missionary position, from art to alien encounters. The 12 titles in his infamous Sex Lives… series have become a world-wide phenomena, now in 23 languages including Korean and Malay. Sex Lives of the Popes was a best seller in Brazil, while Sex Lives of the US Presidents got him on the Joan Rivers Show. Then there are biographies of Christian Dior and Ike Turner. His Empress of South America was published to critical acclaim, while his Strange Laws of Old England became a surprise Christmas best-seller.

“I write on every subject except personal finance – an area I’ve repeatedly demonstrated my astonishing incompetence,” he says.

Self-confessed libertine Cawthorne also has a great line of white suits, a smooth line of chat and the pencil moustache of a rake-about-town. He claims to be the only man to have stood in the dock of the Old Bailey and testified to the US Senate.

Full of outrageous anecdotes, Nigel Cawthorne is available for interview. He has appeared on BBC Radio Four’s Today programme, BBC News, ITN, Channel Four News, CNN, CBC and numerous other TV and radio shows in the UK, US and further field. Reviews have appeared in The Times, The Sunday Times, The Observer, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, The Sun, The Guardian, The Independent, Newsweek, USA Today, The Washington Post, Der Spiegel, Globus, The New Paper (Singapore), and many other local, national and international publications.

Review copies are available from the above publishers.
