The Author

The Author

John Chapman was born in Surrey and educated at Epsom College. He took a degree in agriculture at London University and worked in Malaya for the Rubber Research Institute for eight years. Returning to England in 1963, he was, briefly, a teacher and then worked in public relations for over twenty years. A keen amateur actor all his life, he turned professional after his retirement (stage name John Nicholas) and has appeared on television and in many theatre productions. He was recently seen in a national tour of ‘Rebecca’. He has written many articles, and some poetry, over the years, but ‘Playing the Empire’ is his first book.
He is married, with two grown-up children. He is 75.
