SR Larkman grew up in London, England where he learnt to love gritty crime movies, black humoured fiction, geeky sci-fi and maths. The last of these got him a job as an accountant. The first three gestated for twenty five years and resulted in his first novel.

He now lives in Sydney, Australia with his wife and maybe one day a cat (although is it fair to have a house cat in a flat really?) He works as an accountant but likes maths less and less.
