Marcus Palliser was a successful executive who threw off the corporate shackles for a life of adventure funded by a second career as a writer. He was director of communications at a big computer corporation and left to live on a small yacht and sail the Mediterranean before crossing the Atlantic single-handed and then returning to Britain to write a series of historical seafaring novels, the adventures of Matthew Stalbone Loftus.
