John Bentley: The Author of The Royal Secret

John Bentley is a well known creative entrepreneur, traveller, and now first-time novelist.

Having travelled half the globe through dangerous lands by the age of twenty, he headed up a global media empire by the age of thirty. It included the UK’s largest movie company, producing the cult movie The Wicker Man. At thirty-two, described by the Press as a corporate buccaneer, and discarding a political career, he retired to study philosophy and metaphysics, in homes from the Scottish Highlands to New York, Paris, St. Tropez and Ibiza.

Returning in 1980, his new video retail business became the largest in Europe. By the mid 80’s, branded by the Press as a playboy, he left public life to sail half way round the world. From 1990 he immersed himself in the new digital world to be the first to market with Internet Smart TV in 1995. Now living on Portugal’s Algarve coast he has with The Royal Secret combined his love of history and mystery. With his own take on a world where freedom is under attack, his story told through the eyes of a woman in love, warns that only revolution in thought and deed will save mankind from its self destruction.
