Geoff was born in Birmingham in the 1960s.
He left school at the age of 16, without any qualifications, and began working in a factory. He left the factory after four years and went back to college, ultimately turning down an opportunity to read for a PhD at the University of Bath.
Today Geoff divides his time between homes and studios in southern Sweden and rural France. He has been a professional writer (translator and editor) since 2011.
A Year in Kronoberg is his debut novel..
A YEAR IN KRONOBERG
This is a story about snow.
About winter and even more snow.
But it's also a story about ice cream and sunshine.
It's a story about a gate, helpful neighbours, an angry squirrel and a drunken moose.
About a country in Europe that many people never visit.
This is a story about Sweden.
And it's the story of two Brits who move to Sweden and find a new home there.
You already know the country for its dark, gripping dramas - Wallander, the Bridge, the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - but what's it really like to live in Sweden?
One of the most advanced countries in the world, Sweden is a fascinating mixture of almost endless forest, abundant wildlife and ultra modern technology. Long cold winters and deep snows give way to long hot summer days spent on beaches which wouldn't look out of place on a Greek island. The people are stylish, cool, and often reserved, but also friendly, English speaking and always ready to help.
A Year in Kronoberg is a light-hearted account of two people learning to navigate the idiosyncracies of Swedish culture, landscape and climate.
