After several false starts in his choice of career, Geoffrey Archer moved into journalism, ending up with ITN in 1969. He covered the troubles in Northern Ireland in the 1970s and the civil war in Beirut in 1976, was allowed to travel with a Polaris nuclear submarine, and eventually became Defence Correspondent for ITN. These experiences prompted him to begin writing stories with military and spy themes.
In 1995 he left ITN to concentrate on writing full time. In 1998 his novel Fire Hawk was short-listed for the Crime Writers' Gold Dagger Award.
