William "Bill" Woodford is David Gemmell's stepfather.
Bill was a very important father figure throughout Gemmell's childhood and youth, and became the inspiration for several "Big Man" characters in Gemmell's work. Some examples of this recurring archetype, which appears in some form in almost all of Gemmell's novels, are Druss and Jaim Grymauch.
