William N. Walker is the author of two popular and highly respected novels of inter-war Europe. He brings to his novels a lifetime of experience as a diplomat, government official, and international businessman.
Walker was Ambassador and Chief Trade Negotiator for the United States in the Tokyo Round of Multilateral Trade negotiations conducted under the auspices of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) in Geneva. He lived in Geneva for more than two years as America’s senior diplomat and brings first-hand knowledge to telling the stories in his novels. While the GATT was hardly the League of Nations, international organizations now, as then, are unwieldly and susceptible to the kinds of infighting and manipulation that we witness in the books.
Walker is a winner of the Distinguished Alumnus Award from Wesleyan University. He is the father of three grown children and lives with his wife in New York City and neighboring Westchester County.
