Archie Kimpton - Author

Ever since reading 'sodium monofluorophosphate' on the side of a toothpaste tube, Archie Kimpton has enjoyed putting words together and seeing what comes out. He graduated from Manchester University in 1991 and has spent the last twenty years in preparation for this moment of authordom - flogging salami, script writing, book binding and care working in the interim.

Jumblecat is his first novel.

He lives in south London with his wife, kids and Doonican, the diabetic cat and sometime-inspiration for his animal cruelty based stories (only joking, Dooni).
