#3: Stephen Armstrong

Stephen Armstrong is a British author and journalist whose book, The White Island, remains one of the best-selling accounts of Ibiza's fascinating yet little-known history since it was published in 2005. Although not a historian in the typical sense (his work spans culture, music, politics and other areas), his love for Ibiza inspired him to use his exceptional writing talent to explore the island's colourful past - as both an important strategic naval base for some of history's most powerful civilsations and the capital of unbridled hedonism in Europe from 600BC to the present day.

Stephen currently writes for The Guardian, Sunday Times and GQ amongst others. You can find him on twitter at @SArmstrong1984
