Harry Farthing is an Englishman born in Lynton, North Devon, and raised in the West Country. He was educated at St. Michael’s Preparatory School, near Barnstaple, Allhallows Public School, near Lyme Regis, and at the University of the West of England in Bristol.

From 1987 he enjoyed a successful career with one of the world’s largest commercial real estate consultancies. During this period, he lived and worked in the City of London, Lisbon, Portugal and Milan, Italy becoming Managing Director of the company’s Italian operations and European Board Director with responsibility for activities in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain and Qatar.

In 2010 he moved with his American wife to Charleston, South Carolina, to raise their two daughters and pursue a career in writing.

Harry Farthing has had a lifelong interest in exploration, archaeology and world history, both published and alternate. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and has travelled widely to extreme environments such as the Sahara Desert, the Himalaya, the Amazon and the Arctic North.

An experienced mountaineer, he has climbed extensively including Mt Blanc and the Matterhorn in the Alps, Mt McKinley in Alaska, Shishapangma, the highest mountain in Tibet, and Mount Everest itself. In 2010 he successfully led all thirteen members of a charity climb to the summit of Kilimanjaro in Africa.

In 2011 he made a solo 7,500 mile journey across North America by BMW Motorcycle that linked the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific Oceans and traveled 2,000 miles of unpaved roads above the 60th Parallel. That trip was the latest in a series of extreme motorcycle journeys that started with a ride from the UK to the Moroccan Sahara when he was just 19.

He is an accomplished public speaker and has raised substantial funds for charity through his climbing.

His debut novel “Summit” marries his knowledge of world travel, adventure sports, mountaineering and modern history to create an exciting action story that is both compelling and thought provoking.

Sequels, Kili, about Africa and the continent’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, and Denali, about Mt McKinley and the Arctic North of America, are already in the pipeline.
