Steve Roach

Biography

Steve Roach is a UK based author working in the travel writing, fiction and children's book genres.

Steve's travel books are light-hearted and fun, covering such diverse journeys as a 3 month road trip around North America, a grand tour of Europe in a VW Campervan, a grand tour of Scotland in a campervan and a month long cycling trip through France from Cherbourg to Perpignan.

Steve's fiction is an altogether different prospect, aiming to take the reader to some very dark places. Frequently bordering on horror, these novellas and short stories involve intense research to really bring the subject matter to life.

Finally, Steve also writes children's books, in collaboration with artist Simon Schild.
