Mr. Steven Kay
United Kingdom Novelist
Steven Kay was born in Lancashire, and he grew up in Hambleton close to Morecambe Bay and the Forest of Bowland. His father introduced him to the great outdoors and his mother showed him how to make the most out of his life. His education started in mathematics and at university transitioned to languages. Steven leads a simple life as a health-food enthusiast, he loves to go lake swimming, cycling and camping. He maintains fluency in Dutch, and he intends to retire in Austria where the landscape reminds him of Cumbria but without the continual rains. In Austria he communicates fluently with the locals, and meets up with many flying Hollanders, who also appreciate the Low Countries rather than the Alps.
Finally, without a car and TV, Steven values love of a bygone era and the peacefulness it allows him to enjoy.
