John S Dawson is mainly interested in mundane and medieval astrology and is currently working on two books covering the eras of Richard III and Charles I. The books will concentrate on discovering just how much influence medieval and early modern astrologers had in the political decision making process.

John now works for a leading aerospace company in the north of England where he works as a technical author.
