Niall MacRoslin was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland. Upon finishing school, he swapped the grey skies of Scotland’s capital to read modern languages at Trinity College, Dublin. Somewhere in the midst of his Irish soujourn, Niall developed a love of all things German and decamped to Lake Constance for a year.
Since his return from Baden Württemberg, Niall has worked as a teacher, book reviewer and proof-reader. He has also successfully completed an MSc in Translation Studies, supporting himself in the meantime by taking jobs as a waiter, barman and – briefly – charity shop manager. All of which he believes stands him in good stead for his new career as fiction writer.
He currently lives in London, where the grey skies remind him of home. He shares some of his thoughts on his Blog.
