Simon Goodway


Simon Goodway was born blue owing to a congenital spine defect. A clever doctor sorted him out and he was soon pink and walking about like a normal person.

Some years later he got a degree in artificial intelligence and worked for a bit in software, before he got bored of that and became a freelance illustrator. There was also an incident involving fish and a vacuum cleaner, but we won't go into that.

Throughout all of this he was writing, writing, writing, and finally out popped his masterpiece, Killing Elizabeth. Some other equally brilliant things followed.

He lives in Colchester with a stupid cat called Henry and a fiancée called Jess.
