Ken's profile

Ken Tilbury was born in the Eastern Cape in South Africa and is a direct descendant of the English 1820 Settlers who were sent to establish that part of the country. He was educated in Natal and Swaziland. He grew up among the Swazi people and learnt to speak the language and understand their culture.

After leaving school he was employed on a ranch as a hunter and assistant cattle manager before moving to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) to join the British South African Police. He served time in the police force before leaving to pursue his ambition of farming.

With the struggle for independence and political conflict in the country he joined the PATU (Police Anti Terrorist Unit) and was involved in the ‘Bush War’ for twelve years.

After the war he moved to Swaziland on contract for nine years and later to Kwa Zulu Natal where he farmed bananas and bred crocodiles.

He moved back to Zimbabwe to farm and years later, under the threat of death, he and his wife were forced to leave their farm by Mugabe backed farm invaders. They have settled in the UK where Ken uses his lifetimes’ experiences in Africa to write books.

I'm not paying for reviews anymore Ken. I already did one with Kirkus and it hasn't seemed to have made a difference/boosted my sales. Up to you but I won't.
