More About the Author
I graduated in Social Anthropology and Visual Anthropology, and am currently working for a part-time, postgraduate degree in History - On the making of a revolutionary journalist.
After quickly realising that hardly anyone knew what Anthropology was, I tried documentary (arts therapy for mental health, dancing skeletons etc) and saving the world (Greenpeace, Oxfam, IVS etc) before combining those interests on a UN-sponsored magazine (TVE) and then moving into non-fiction/reference.
I've worked mostly in non-fiction publishing as a writer and editor. I now work for a start-up helping to produce and promote cutting-edge immersive thrillers for iPad.
I also translate from French in the hope that one day I might be allowed to resubtitle A Bout de Souffle.
Besides the titles listed here, I have covered a vast range of subjects, including history, art, religion, origami, and even anthropology, for encyclopedias and coffee tableweights with solid sounding names, such as, er, History and Art.
When I get a moment, I divide my spare time between attempting to resuscitate Marat's corpse, imagining James Dean and Marilyn Monroe on a first date, compiling soundtracks to non-existent films and watching too much Breaking Bad.
I used to surf but gave it up after falling over too many times.
I'm always open to interesting offers of work.
