Mark Gold watched his first FA Cup Final on television as a seven-year-old in 1960 - the last time Wolves won the trophy. He has been hooked ever since! His previous football book, Under A Wanderers Star - Forty pain-filled years following the Wolves (2002) was widely praised for light-heartedly capturing the hopes and frustrations experienced by many Wolves supporters over the decades.
He is also the author of five other books, including a novel Cranks And Revolutions (2008) and Living Without Cruelty (1988), voted by The Observer as one of the top green books of the period.
Mark also works for Animal Aid and Citizens Advice. He now lives in Devon.
