Tom Holland

Tom Holland was educated at Queen's College, Cambridge. He started a PhD dissertation on Lord Byron at the University of Oxford but abandoned academia and turned to writing fiction. His first novel, The Vampyre (1995) tells of a fictitious Lord Byron with vampiric tendencies. Holland went on to publish five further novels in historical horror and thriller genres.

His first history book, Rubicon (2003) explores the last stages of the Roman Republic; it gained wide critical acclaim upon publication and won the 2004 Hessell-Tiltman Prize. His other popular works include Persian Fire (2005), Millennium (2008), In the Shadow of the Sword (2012) and Dominion (2019), amongst others.

Holland has also presented TV documentaries, including Islam: The Untold Story and Isis: The Origins of Violence for Channel 4, and the documentary film Dinosaurs, Myth and Monsters for the BBC.
