Al K. Line is a British author who lives in rural England with his wife, son, and dogs. Apparently he has chickens, too, but said they don't count even though they are more productive than the dogs.
When asked to describe himself for this bio all we got was the following:
"Who am I? Degrees, jobs, living in other countries, fighting squirrels, cuddling monkeys, amused by penguins, all the usual stuff."
