Will Roberts was born and raised in Newport, South Wales, and worked for twenty-two years at a small steel mill, making stainless steel and special steels. Upon the closure of this steel mill, Will was forced to look abroad for alternative employment and has spent the last twenty-five years travelling the world as a Steelmaking Consultant.
Having always had a passion for reading, and particularly historical novels, in 2014 he decided to write a novel himself. At the time he was working in Greece, on the beautiful Pelion peninsular, the home of the mythical centaurs, so it was no surprise his first novel was about centaurs and ancient Greece: The Last Centaur was first published in 2016.
Will Roberts is a proud and patriotic Welshman; consequently, his second publication was Massacre at Abergavenny Castle, from The Man of Gwent series. This comprises a selection of short stories depicting old, often forgotten, stories and events that took place in Wales and, in particular, the county of Gwent.
Will also has a passion for sport, rugby particularly, and has, where possible, tried to include both rugby and steelmaking in his works.
