Lewis Crofts on Lewis Crofts. I was born in 1977 in Blackburn, UK. After growing up in Somerset, I moved to Oxford where I studied Modern and Medieval Languages at St Catherine's College. In 2000, I went to live in Hanover, Germany, where I worked as a translator and teacher and tried to grow a handlebar moustache.
A year later and still smooth-faced, I moved to Prague where I did much the same and had my first exposure to Egon Schiele on a weekend trip to his mother's native village in south Bohemia.
In 2003, I left for Brussels where I now live and work as a journalist. I am currently working on a second novel which might feature beards.
