Simon Lelic eBooks
Simon Lelic was born in Brighton in 1976 and, after a decade or so living in London and trying to convince himself that the tube was fine, really, because it gave him a chance to read, his wife and he moved back to Brighton with their three young children. That Barnaby, Joseph and Anja’s grandparents happened to live close enough by to be able to offer their babysitting services was, of course, entirely coincidental.
As well as writing, he runs an import/export business. He says this, when people ask, with a wink but he fools no one: he is more Del Trotter than Howard Marks. His hobbies (when he has time for them) include reading (for which he makes time, because he can just about get away with claiming this is also work), golf, tennis, snowboarding and karate. His weekends belong to his family (or so his wife tells him), as does his heart.
He studied history at the University of Exeter. After graduating he was qualified, Simon discovered . . . to do an MA. After that he figured he had better learn something useful, so took a post-grad course in journalism. He knows, he knows: so much for learning something useful. After working freelance and then in business-to-business publishing, he now write novels. Not useful either, necessarily, but fun and, in its own way, important.
