Author Biographies

It’s an unwritten rule, that author’s websites shall be out of date. And then, when you mention it, in passing, they get all snotty about it. And update them, or get someone else to, and then leave them well alone…It’s always a mistake, I think you’ll find, to put a section headed ‘Latest News.’

These (short) biographies are – starting August 2018 – taken from the book, the latest one, I have read by these authors. Where I can find one on their website, so presumably approved by said author, I’ve included a picture.
