London-born Danny Chaplin (b. 1965) is a Singapore-based author, magazine journalist and public relations consultant. His PR and journalism work has taken him to every corner of Southeast Asia and North Asia representing such clients as Land Rover, Qatar Airways, Formula One and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations amongst many others. His travel journalism has, over the years, appeared in the in-flight magazines of most Asian airlines. But aside from travel his other abiding interest has always been history, particularly the ancient, Medieval and Renaissance periods with an emphasis on the Italian peninsula and Byzantium. 'Strenuitas: The Life and Times of Robert Guiscard and Bohemond of Taranto' was his first published book in 2015.
