Profile I`m a book editor and author. As an editor, I specialise in copy-editing fiction in general and crime fiction in particular. I wrote The Last Wrestlers: A Far-Flung Journey in Search of a Manly Art, published by Ebury Press in 2007. The Literary Review described it as ‘accomplished, fresh, passionate, genuinely exciting and entertaining`. Right now I`m writing a crime novel set in Rio. I live on an island in the Mediterranean that no one has heard of and where they drive on the left.
