After an idyllic childhood in England, college education and a very successful working life as a scientist, corporate manager, and entrepreneur in America, Ronald Haines ‘retired’ to the Bahamas for the next phase of his life as an author, primarily focusing on historical fiction after setting up his author websites.  Ronald has published in several genres including:

historical fiction: adventure and romance

contemporary fiction

non-fiction

but his primary focus currently is the adventure and romance of historical fiction.  History lets us know what happened, but the unique style of Ronald Haines romance and adventure puts the reader inside the heads of the people who were there.cropped-ronald-captain.jpg

Ronald is goal directed, self-motivated, and a big believer in individual freedom and its requisite companion, personal responsibility. You’ll find these traits expressed throughout his works.

He genuinely enjoys the process of writing and can be totally immersed in whatever world he is creating for hours at a time. But when not at his desk writing, you’ll find him walking the beach, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, sailing, or generally exploring Grand Bahama Island.

Ronald finds the study of history and historical people fascinating and he believes that people are really no different now than they were even thousands of years ago in terms of their motivations, desires, prejudices and biases.  Ronald Haines Historical Fiction novels are well researched for historical fact, and through his characters readers will be put inside the heads of the people who there, living it.  Ronald is currently working on both the sequels and prequels to his latest historical adventure/romance novel, Pirates of the Bahamas, which will continue into a five part series ranging from the golden age of piracy through the American Revolution.

On a personal note, in his non-fiction book, Finding Out Will Change Your Life Forever, Ronald shares his traumatic experience of discovering he had been face blind all of his life and how that knowledge changed the direction of his life going forward.
