Stephen Kelman was born in Luton in 1976. He first showed an aptitude for English at the age of six, when he began reading books on the GCSE curriculum. Stephen had his first short story published in an adult anthology at the age of 16, and after finishing his degree he worked variously as a warehouse operative, a careworker, and in marketing and local government administration. He decided to pursue his writing seriously in 2005, and has completed several feature screenplays since then. Pigeon English is his first novel; he is currently working on his second.
