Paddy Kelly was born in Ireland and narrowly avoided being a farmer. A romantic accident caused him to move to Sweden where he remains to this day, now a huge fan of standing in line and fermented fish. To earn a crust, he programs time-wasting mobile games.
When not scribbling at his desk, Paddy dances Lindy Hop, Belly Dance and Charleston, goes for long walks where he invariably gets lost, and finds unexpected new ways to cook porridge. Other things that tickle his fancy include goth, airships, the 1920s and imperial porter.
Bonus fact 1: Paddy has, on several occasions, had his arm all the way inside a cow.
Bonus fact 2: Paddy has never lost a staring contest. Not once.
