Alien Life

A collection of stories taken from events that happened either directly to the author or to people who he has known personally. Only the names have been changed.

About Jeremy Fox

I was educated at Oxford and London Universities and Cranfield School of Management and hold degrees in Modern Languages, Latin-American Studies (History and Economic History), and Business. I have been variously a periodical and book publisher, a freelance journalist, a university teacher, the artistic director of a theatre company, a British Council Overseas Career Service Officer and a management consultant. During a long period of residence in Mexico, I founded and co-directed a bi-lingual theatre, gave university-level courses in English Literature and Economic History, and was the first editor of a Spanish-language journal published by CIDE (Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas). I have written plays in both English and Spanish, a novel - The chocolate Man – published in Canada by Cormorant Press (1995) and selected as a “Book at Bedtime” by CBC Radio. Non-fiction writings include commissioned books on Brazil and Colombia, the ‘Latin American’ volume of Purnell’s ‘History of the Twentieth Century’, and many articles and shorter pieces. I have also translated several book-length works from French and Spanish into English.
After cutting my teeth as a management consultant with Woods Gordon (now part of Ernst & Young) in Toronto, I became the founding partner of Fox Jones & Associates, and helped to run it for twenty years. As a consultant, I have conducted assignments for both public and private sector clients throughout North and South America, in India, Africa and Europe. I have been an adviser on Latin-America to both the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and the Canadian International Development Agency. More recently, I was CEO and am now Chair of the Board of Claro Support - an organization providing support for students and personnel with disabilities. In addition to my native English, I speak fluent Spanish, Portuguese and French.
