I write on the very varied subjects listed below. Despite their variety, they have one thing in common: they enthuse and excite me. I am a multi-disciplinary writer, not a specialist. Subjects on which I have written include:
- noise pollution
After graduating with a degree in history and history of art from Cambridge University, I have lived in London, Paris and Vienna. I am now based in Wiltshire, almost within sight of Stonehenge. There is a small megalith just outside my own house. I am the founder of Pipedown, the Campaign for Freedom from Piped Music and was a founder-member of the Siesta Club (currently in abeyance.)
My books have been translated into fourteen languages.
