About the author (2010)

COLLETTE LYONS’S WRITING CAREER has so far proved a rather wonderful excuse to disappear around the world for years at a time. The London-born, Cambridge-educated writer has been putting pen to paper for magazines and newspapers including The Guardian, The Independent and The Sunday Times in the United Kingdom, as well as Arabian titles such as The National, Time Out Dubai and OK!
