About the Author
Richard Shury was born in Wellington, New Zealand, and that was where he stayed for most of his life, until completing an English degree at Otago University, Dunedin. Sensing opportunity and craving travel, he moved to the UK in 2005. He currently lives in West London with an assortment of Kiwis, Aussies, and one South African, and enjoys the usual passtimes associated with that lifestyle, as well as sampling the eclectic London culture. In his spare time he writes, paints, and reads books about poets and atheism.
