Euron Griffith was born in Bangor, North Wales. At the earliest opportunity he ran away to the University of Kent to study English and to concentrate on growing his hair to ridiculous lengths. Boldly deciding to either be a great writer or starve, he rapidly became intimately familiar with the location of every bin in Canterbury. Desperate, he got a proper job with the BBC. He now lives with three cats and a goldfish in a very tense Victorian house in Cardiff.
