Dear Mr Cornwell, I am a huge fan of your books and would just like to say that I can't wait for the new one. The thing I'd like to ask is, recently I was reading a historical fiction book based on the Nepoleonic war again but this time it was about a French cavalry officer in Italy. I was wondering if this was actually written by you as the style is very similar, as is the hero? I thought it might have been published under a different name as not to upset too many Sharpe fans, your sincerely Philip Ashley
I didn't write it (can't imagine where I'd find the time...).
