Ken Follett is a Welsh thriller and historical fiction writer, whose works are phenomenal bestsellers around the world. Follett’s first literary success came in 1978 with the spy thriller Eye of the Needle, which he wrote whilst Deputy Managing Director of independent publishing house Everest Books. After a run of espionage novels, including The Key to Rebecca and The Man from St. Petersburg, Follett changed tack with the historical epic The Pillars of the Earth in 1989. A multi-generational story set in 11th century England, the book became an incredible bestseller, spawning two sequels and the 2020 prequel The Evening and the Morning known collectively as The Kingsbridge Series. Follett returned to historical saga during 2010-14, with the Century Trilogy, which followed the fortunes of several dynasties through the 20th century.
