Duncan Pell is English and grew up near London. During a long career in business he lived and worked in the UK, the Netherlands, France, Dubai, and Ukraine. He is now based in Ras al-Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates, where he concentrates on writing. In his spare time, he travels, sails, and plays golf.

His third novel Much More Than a Game will be published early in 2015. The background to the novel is match fixing in international cricket but the story involves much more including a powerful secret society determined to destabilise the European Union. It features the charming and dignified Andrew Ball again but introduces many new and some unsavoury, characters.

Much More Than a Game is a contemporary novel and takes readers to India, trouble torn Ukraine, Italy and the United Kingdom.
