Profile: Adrian Farrel

About This Author

Adrian Farrel is a grandfather, father, and husband. Before Tales from the Wood, his writing was limited to technical reference books and to specifications for Internet protocols. Those, too, in some sense have an element of truth running through them. Adrian divides his life between North Wales and the Alps, and spends more time worrying about the politics and social impact of the Internet than is reasonable. You can find him on Twitter as @llanolddog. Adrian blogs about fairy tales on FaceBook at
