Bestselling novelist, disgraced former Conservative Party chairman, and prison diarist.
- Jeffrey Archer's hugely successful writing career began after a five-year spell as an MP which was ended by a financial scandal, leaving him nearly bankrupt.
- His first novel, Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less, was a huge success and saved Archer from further money trouble.
- His continued popularity as an author led to financial stability, particularly with Kane and Abel reaching number one in The New York Times bestseller list.
- This allowed him to return to politics as deputy chairman of the Conservative Party in 1985, despite Margaret Thatcher being warned that Archer was 'an accident waiting to happen'.
- A prostitution scandal in 1986 forced him to resign from political life once again, but Archer sued the Daily Star, won the case, and was paid damages of £500,000.
- Archer's career went from strength to strength, eventually being chosen as the Conservative candidate for the Mayor of London, but new evidence from the prostitution legal case surfaced which eventually proved that he committed perjury during the original trial.
- He was sentenced to four years in prison, but served only two of them. He published three volumes of bestselling diaries based on his prison experiences, beginning with Belmarsh.
- The perjury case destroyed his career in politics, but he continues to write popular novels - he's sold over 250 million copies worldwide. His latest series is the Clifton Chronicles, a seven-part saga beginning with Only Time Will Tell.
