About the Author

Jonathan Pinnock spent the first fifty or so years of his life in the Home Counties before realising that Somerset was a lot nicer. He has had over a hundred short stories and poems published in places both illustrious and downright insalubrious, including the BBC. His debut novel Mrs Darcy versus the Aliens occasionally appears in lists of things that should never have been done to Jane Austen. Most recently his work has taken a turn into narrative non-fiction, in the shape of Take It Cool, the story of his search for an obscure reggae singer who shares his surname.
