Piers Dudgeon is the author of more than thirty works of non-fiction. He worked for ten years as an editor in London before starting his own company producing books with authors as diverse as John Fowles, Catherine Cookson, Peter Ackroyd, Daphne du Maurier, Shirley Conran and Ted Hughes.

Subsequently, he left London for Yorkshire, where he wrote a number of books evocative of the spirit of place and, among many biographies, Captivated: J. M. Barrie, the Du Mauriers & the Dark Side of Neverland (2008), which for the first time showed the depth of influence that the life and work of George du Maurier had upon J. M. Barrie, and Barrie himself had on the following generations of the du Maurier family, in particular on George’s granddaughter, Daphne du Maurier.
