ROBIN HELLABY traces his ancestry to Jersey and Ireland and was educated at Nottingham High School and Cambridge University, where he read Oriental Studies (specialising in Persian and Ottoman Turkish).
On graduation, he went to work for the Ministry of the Imperial Court as an English teacher at a new university on the edge of the Great Salt Desert. He was evacuated during the Iranian Revolution of 1979 and then taught English in Istanbul and Cambridge, and authored various English teaching materials.
In 1985, he joined the BBC’s Monitoring Service, where he was responsible for conveying news to the world. He then opted for a quieter life as a freelance translator and was one of the first members of this profession to exploit electronic communication, supplying his clients with translations of everything from Noël Coward’s will to the European Lipstick Regulations.
His travels eventually took him to a remote corner of South-East Asia where he met his soulmate. The couple now lead a tranquil life in a quaint village where they write, paint, make furniture and grow pineapples.
The Last Fandango is Robin Hellaby’s first published work. He is currently working on a sequel to The Last Fandango.
