Bio: Alastair has spent much of his life in West Sussex and the surrounding area. He fled life as a student at Southampton University and a looming career in chiropody to busk his way around Europe with his best buddy Stewart Ferris.
To avoid getting 'proper' jobs on their return they set up Summersdale Publishers Ltd. with their first book, The Buskers Guide to Europe. Ten years later, Alastair remains a director of Summersdale - now a successful independent publishing house, specialising in travel, cookery, biography and humour.
Alastair lives in West Sussex with his wife and daughter.
