Ted Simon

Born to a German mother and a Romanian father, Ted Simon was brought up in England through World War II. He soon found himself impelled by an insatiable desire to explore the world that led him to abandon an early scientific career in favour of journalism, and he has worked for several newspapers and magazines on Fleet Street and elsewhere. He is also the author of The Chequered Year, Riding High, The River Stops Here, The Gypsy in Me and Rolling Through The Isles.
