For years, I have been confused with my distant Irish cousin, Michael Dobbs, author of the hit BBC television series, House of Cards. My namesake has been fielding questions and comments about my books and kindly forwarding e-mails sent to him, but intended for me. I have a new book coming out in October, Six Months in 1945, so I have decided this is a good time to end the confusion and launch my own website.
The website is a work in progress, so I welcome your comments and suggestions. I hope you will enjoy the slide shows, maps, and live Twitter Feed from the Cuban missile crisis. Please use the comment form to get in touch with me. You can also post comments to this blog. I will keep you updated with the publication plans for my new book, and various events marking the 50th anniversary of the missile crisis, all happening this October.
Michael Dobbs is the author of seven books, including the best-selling One Minute to Midnight. His latest book, King Richard, is about Nixon and Watergate.
