Join the Ladies Committee as they welcome Oliver Greeves as he discusses his debut novel Nelson’s Folly; a compelling exploration of duty in all its forms, Nelson’s Folly is a sweeping, historically rich novel based on the true story of Horatio and Fanny Nelson and their lives together – and apart. 

Oliver is a direct descendant of Frances (Fanny), Viscountess Nelson and her son, Josiah Nisbet. Oliver spent many years working on Wall Street and now lives near his beloved Sydney Harbour in Sydney, Australia. When not writing, he spends his time sailing and advising executive business leaders and the next generation.

Long fascinated by Fanny’s life and times, he has travelled extensively researching her story and the turbulent times of the French Revolutionary Wars and the Napoleonic War. He has now embarked on recreating stories of the era based on historical fact, while using fiction to explore the psyche and characters behind the myths. 

A keen historian, Oliver believes in the importance of truth-telling in historical fiction. He has a PhD in history from Bristol University in the United Kingdom and studied creative writing at the New School in Greenwich Village New York.

Oliver will be signing books on the day and the book will be available for purchase for those who are interested.
