Author Biography

David Wiseman joined the British Army in 2006 and was commissioned from Sandhurst into The Yorkshire Regiment. In 2009 he commanded a small team of British Soldiers embedded within Afghan Forces deep into the Nad E'Ali District of Central Helmand Province; it was here, during a highly kinetic engagement with the Taliban, that he suffered a gunshot wound to the chest. Following extensive surgery and months of rehab he joined a team of wounded soldiers who, together, took on Mount Everest. Medically discharged from the army in 2013, David continues his charitable work for other wounded personnel on a professional basis. Nick Harding is an acclaimed author and award-winning journalist, having written several Sunday Times Booklist top ten best-sellers including autobiographies for Paddy Doherty and Gemma Collins. He began his career 20 years ago, was a senior features executive at News International and is now a regular contributor to The Independent, The Daily Mail, MF Magazine, Fabulous, The Sun and The Daily Mirror.
