Ian Young


Ian Young was born in Manchester to a librarian mother and an aviation mad father. Unable to decide which parent he took after, Ian became a pilot who writes books.

Now part time, Ian spends only the summer months flying passengers around Europe. The rest of the time he spends writing.

Ian studied English Literature at university and is a qualified copy-editor. He lives near Bristol in England with his wife, two children and, at the time of writing, a dog and two giant snails.
