Sam Boyd was born into a large family of five brothers and five sisters. They lived on a stud farm in North Yorkshire, England, and bred thoroughbred racehorses. Sam’s father was Head Groom, and life was hard but idyllic. Growing up with many brothers and sisters meant there was always competition for food, affection and order. It was expected that as soon as anyone reached the age where they could fly the nest they did.
Two of Sam’s brothers went into the military, serving in special forces with the Army and the Royal Air force. It is from these experiences that the Mel Doyle series is written.
Sam went into industry, rising to become Chairman and CEO of both private and publicly quoted companies. It is where he met representatives from the royal family, government and high society and is the background to the Jack Turner series of novels.
Sam has lived in the United Kingdom and the United States of America and currently resides in Thailand. It wasn’t until Sam retired that he started writing and his first novel ‘Consequences’ was published.
There are currently three novels in the Jack Turner series and Four in the Mel Doyle series.
