William Crowbourne: A Biography

Born in the Cotswolds, William spent his childhood playing football, reading books and wanting to be a writer without actually bothering to practice. He read Ancient History and Archaeology in Llanbedr Pont Stefan in Wales and taught English for five years in Osaka, Japan. Newly returned to England he spends his time applying fruitlessly for jobs and writing his debut novel.

      He has been published 10 times in the last year, under various names, in publications such as SFX (a pithy review of Starship Troopers), Kansai Time Out and Kansai Scene. He continues to write for the latter. This adds to dozens of published letters, a renga, haiku and newsletters in England and Japan.
