Alex Ford


Alex Ford was born in Cambridge in 1975. After teaching Design & Technology at a secondary school in England, he decided to pack away his corduroy trousers and tweed jacket to travel the world. While living in Tokyo, Japan, updating his Facebook friends about 'What was on his mind...' he wrote his first novel, The Friend Request - a Facebook-based thriller. Still writing and travelling, Karl & the Prankster God is his second novel.
It seems highly unlikely he will return to the classroom any time soon.
