Hi. My name is Charlie De Luca and I am an author. I work in Higher Education but write racing thrillers. I have written Rank Outsiders, The Gift Horse and Twelve in the Sixth. i was brought up on farm and my father ws a permit holder, so trained a National Hunt horses that he and my mother had bred. I love horses but sadly grew too tall to be jockey. I still have a few horses and some ex race horses. All books are available on Amazon.

I love reading, writing, the countryside and a glass of wine or two. I am currently working on my fourth book with a co author. This is ‘Making Allowances’ which should be out in April 2018.

I love to hear from other animal lovers, I have lots of other animals too, and people from all walks of life. I am interested in educational matters, psychology and life in general. I like nothing better than people watching, especially at the races!
