Jeffrey Archer was a member of Parliament before becoming an author. He began writing to support his financial needs after being caught in an investment scheme leaving him half a million pounds in debt. Archer later returned to his career in politics in the 1980s before being sent to trial for lying under oath and serving time in prison in the early 2000s.
