about the author

Alexander Travell

Alexander Travell, the mind behind “Crispin D’Or and the Ice Pirates,” traces his literary journey back to works by iconic sci-fi authors like Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke and the less prominent Paul Kearney or David Gemmell. Intrigued by the storytelling, Alex read multiple genres ranging from history, science fiction, and the realms of science fantasy.

The imaginative fiction blended into these stories, while captivating, left Travell yearning for tales grounded in reality. He found inspiration in authors like Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden, who brought history to life with vivid narratives. These writers nurtured Alexs’ diverse palette across genres, inspiring a dozen completed works that, not all of which are yet in the public domain, reflect his appetite for  storytelling.
