Toni Mount's first career was in science before spending many years in a second profession, teaching. She has a first class honours degree from the Open University, an MA by Research in medieval medicine from the University of Kent, Diplomas in European Humanities, Literature and Creative Writing. Her love of history led to a third career as a writer, specialising in the ordinary lives and fascinating characters from history. Her first book, released by Amberley Publishing in 2014, was Everyday Life in Medieval London. She continues to teach history to adults both in person and online and has now written many successful non-fiction and fiction books. This latest study, The World of Isaac Newton, sees her return to her first love, science, with the chance to take a fresh look at one of the world's most famous characters.
