John Linwood Grant started writing dark fantasy and crime fiction some years ago. A career in health research interfered with this, but now he's back. Born in Yorkshire, England, he grew up in a tiny village by a wind-swept coast and three hundred foot cliffs, but fooled the Hidden Folk by moving to a large city full of cold iron. And better beer.
Six foot tall, good-natured and with his own beard, he and his partner have a child but don't usually know where it is. They also take on rescue lurchers and longdogs when they have room in the house. There's a lot of walking involved. And chicken carcasses.
