About the Author

Julian Edgar started his working life freelancing for photography magazines.

He then worked as a secondary school teacher for eight years, teaching humanities, before leaving teaching and becoming a full-time automotive writer.

He edited a national Australian automotive print magazine before becoming editor of AutoSpeed, an online car magazine. Along the way he wrote extensively for Silicon Chip, an electronics hobbyist magazine, while contributing articles to publications in Australia, the UK and the US.

He has owned cars with two, three, four, five, six and eight cylinder engines; diesel, petrol and hybrid petrol/electric drivelines; front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations; and cars with single turbos, twin turbos and superchargers.

He has driven a wide variety of electric and hybrid cars, including testing many new hybrid cars as an automotive journalist.

He has extensively modified a Toyota Prius (including fitting in different iterations a supercharger and then a turbocharger), owns a first generation Honda Insight, and has designed and built his own human-powered vehicles.

Julian lives in a hamlet 80 kilometres north of Canberra, Australia. He spends much of the week playing in his home workshop - for the rest of the time, he trains government Public Servants in high level writing skills.
