Joss Sheldon


Joss Sheldon is a scruffy nomad, an unshaven layabout, and a good for nothing hobo. Born in 1982, he was brought up in one of the anonymous suburbs which wrap themselves around London's beating heart. And then he escaped!

With a degree from the London School of Economics to his name, Sheldon had spells selling falafel at music festivals, being a ski-bum, and failing to turn the English Midlands into a haven of rugby league.

Then, in 2013, he went to McLeod Ganj in India; a village which plays home to thousands of angry monkeys, hundreds of Tibetan refugees, and the Dalai Lama himself. It was there that Sheldon wrote 'Involution & Evolution'; a book about love in an era of hatred, truth in an era of lies, and peace in an era of war.

With several positive reviews to his name, Sheldon had caught the writing bug. So he travelled around Palestine and Kurdistan to write his second novel, 'Occupied'; a dystopian 'masterpiece' unlike any other story you've ever read...
