About the Author

Gill grew up in Warwickshire until the age of seven, when her family moved to a derelict railway station in mid-Wales. By the age of eighteen her only aim in life was to escape the Welsh hills, so off she went to explore. After an enlightening gap year, she ducked out of a law degree and studied French and Philosophy at University College, Oxford. Then she tried mental health work, environmental work, life in a VW van in the Outer Hebrides, busking, turning pigsties into craft workshops and working on an antiques stall... all fun, but none of them quite right.

Gill went freelance in 2000. It has involved all sorts of writing — commissioned fiction, non-fiction, film reviews and even a software manual. Then a year in Egypt resulted in both Orphan of the Sun, set in ancient Egypt, and Love in Luxor, a modern teenage love story (Piccadilly, 2005). Further travel led to journalism, and she now writes travel features, too.

Gill lives in London but is always itching to spend more time in Africa, her favourite continent.
