Stephen Dunkley started out as a barman but stopped when he was enjoying beer too much. He then tried his hand at developing websites but enjoys that too much. Being a firm believer in the mad idea that work should feel like it, he took up writing.

And if it wasn’t hard enough to make a living from writing, 20% of all his profits from book sales will go to charity. For his first book, Endangered Creatures, it be split between The Zoological Society London and The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) because these people are trying to protect our planet and all the wonderful species we have.
