Tom Holt was born in London in 1961. At Oxford he studied bar billiards, ancient Greek agriculture and the care and feeding of small, temperamental Japanese motorcycle engines; interests which led him, perhaps inevitably, to qualify as a solicitor and emigrate to Somerset, where he specialized in death and taxes for seven years before going straight in 1995. He lives in Chard, Somerset, with his wife and daughter.

This was the book that caught my eye and turned my brain on to the humor of Tom Holt - a must read for those who appreciate that all need not be as it seems!
So glad his books are available. They are hard to find in the US but SO funny.
