Felix Francis is the bestselling author of the Dick Francis novels.
The younger of the two sons of Dick and Mary Francis, after seventeen years as a teacher, Felix took on the role of managing his father’s affairs in the 1990s. His importance to the franchise grew from that day, culminating in the pair co-writing Under Orders, the first book Dick wrote after a five year hiatus. At his father’s insistence, Felix was credited as a full co-author on Dead Heat and the subsequent three books. The last book the pair worked together on was Crossfire, published in 2010, the year of Dick's death.
Felix has had numerous articles and a short story published in UK newspapers and magazines. He has also led four expeditions to destinations such as the Himalayan and Andean mountains, and the jungles of the Amazon basin and Borneo. He is a passionate cricketer and a regional chairman for the Lord’s Taverners, a qualified pilot, and enjoys playing golf badly and scuba diving rather better. He shuttled back and forth to the Caribbean regularly while his father was alive, but now divides his time between Oxfordshire and Devon.
