About us

This website is maintained by John and Larisa Martin the Editors.

John is a biographer of Daniel Defoe and Jonathan Swift. In 2009 he discovered that Defoe was born in 1644 and not 1660 as had previously been supposed. He is currently working on an academic book detailing the secret life Defoe lived in 1644-1680. He is a Director of APF Limited.

Larisa Martin is the Technical Director of APF Limited.

Both Editors welcome suggestions for the improvement of the site.

It is the intention of John and Larisa Martin to develop a special entertainment Event, Defoe’s World, in Essex.
