Simon Lelic was born in Brighton in 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, Simon and his wife moved back to Brighton with their three young children. As well as writing, he runs an import/export business. His hobbies (when he has time for them) include reading, golf, tennis, snowboarding and karate. His weekends belong to his family (or so his wife tells him), as does his heart.
