Rod Rees has spent his life travelling throughout Africa, the Middle East, Bangladesh and Russia, and consequently found himself living in Qatar, Tehran and Moscow. He has built pharmaceutical factories in Dhaka, set up a satellite communication network in Moscow, and conceived and designed a jazz-themed hotel in the UK.
Now a full-time writer, Rod lives near Derby, England, with his wife Nelli and their two children. The Demi-Monde: Winter is his first novel, and it will be followed by three further books in the series: Spring, Summer and Autumn. His website can be found at www.thedemi-monde.com.
