Simon Weston OBE is a former British Army soldier who became well known after suffering severe injuries during the bombing of the Sir Galahad in the Falklands War. After recovering from his initial injuries, he has worked tirelessly for charity and is now a well-known personality on radio and TV, and much in demand as an after dinner speaker throughout the UK. He has published three books for children with Pont Books, A Nod from Nelson and its sequel, Nelson to the Rescue and Nelson at Sea. Television personality and presenter David FitzGerald (Fitz) currently writes for newspapers and magazines as well as hosting a regular Saturday morning programme for BBC Radio Devon. He and Simon Weston have been friends since they first met over twenty years ago. They share a whacky sense of humour and a wicked sense of fun, and enjoyed collaborating on three books for children, A Nod from Nelson, Nelson to the Rescue and Nelson at Sea published by Pont Books. David Fitzgerald also published A Very Berry Christmas with illustrator Robert Dudley in 2012.
