Spike Evans was brought up in Yorkshire. He is married and lives with his wife, Jo, and their cat, Fred, in a tiny terraced house crammed with ancient (largely non-functioning) musical instruments. 'Single To Morden' is his first novel; its not-quite follow-ups, 'Cheek' and 'Apeman' are available on... well, you know, a certain well-known book retailing site. The evil one. Ahem.
