Jeremy Lent, the author of The Requiem of the Human Soul, was born in England in 1960 but has spent most of his adult life in the United States, now living in the San Francisco Bay Area.
He received his BA and MA in English Literature from Emmanuel College, Cambridge in 1981, before coming to the United States, where he met his future wife, Molly, in California.
After several years traveling in Latin America, Jeremy earned an MBA at the University of Chicago and began a business career in management consulting. In 1996, he founded an Internet company which went public in 1999. This company, NextCard, was the first in the world to enable people to apply for a credit card and get accepted online, in real time. In 2000, he stepped aside from the CEO role to help look after Molly, who was suffering exacerbations from a chronic illness.
Since then, Jeremy has pursued a vocation in writing. The Requiem of the Human Soul is his first novel.
