Quentin BatesBook and Novel

Quentin Bates - Author

Brought up in the south of England, Quentin Bates took up the offer of a gap year working in Iceland in 1979, and found himself spending a gap decade there. During the 1980s he acquired a family, a new language and a new profession, before returning to the UK in 1990. Since then he has been, among other things, a full-time marine journalist.

Frozen Out is born of the author's intimate knowledge of Iceland and its people, along with a fascination with the  recent upheaval in Iceland's turbulent society. Qunetin and his wife regularly return to their friends, relatives and other home in the north of Iceland.
