Lindsey Mellon


Lindsey Mellon was born in London in 1949 and largely uneducated. He is passionate about history, travel and current affairs and has harboured an ambition for six decades to write fiction, but never quite got off the blocks.

He recently completed a Faber ‘Work in Progress’ course, as part of which he developed the first draft of ‘Straw Man’. He is presently writing a sequel ‘The Sheikh’, set in Khartoum during the sinister infancy of Al-Qaeda during the early nineties.

Widely travelled, he has lived in the UK, Ireland, Kenya, Sudan, Somalia, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. He has worked, among other things, as a pilot, a painter, an entrepreneur, an oil explorer and as a Producer in Film & TV.

He lives and works in Oxfordshire.
