About This Author

He's an English ex-pat who’s been living in the Czech Republic since the beginning of 2001. He's been a chemical engineering research assistant, TEFL teacher and now mainly proof-reads translations and scientific articles as well as forming a Czech-English translation team with his Czech wife. He fell in love with this beautiful country during his first visit to it in 1997, and it was here that his artistic side was awoken, after learning to play with its language he finally appreciated his own native tongue and the possibilities it offered. His journey into creative writing proper started with taking part in the role-playing section of a computer game support forum in 1999. After his stories and contributions to other people’s stories proved popular, he accepted an invitation to a small writing forum, where he developed the ideas for his first novel and discovered to his great surprise that he had a talent for poetry. The Czech Republic, with its glorious natural beauty and the fascinating contrast between it’s many gorgeous and well-preserved medieval castles and architecture alongside modern buildings and technology, inspired the setting for NOBILITY AMONG US, which takes place in a land where not only the ancient monuments, sculptures and architecture left over from feudal times have survived intact to coexist with modern technology, but the political system and culture have somehow remained as well.
