A little bit about me

Born in Sydney, Australia and raised in north London, I studied social anthropology in Hull, fine art in Sydney and cultural history and fiction writing back in London. I have fingers in various creative, political and social pies.  Currently I am mostly preoccupied with the South London Botanical Institute, a plant and environmental education charity in south London (where I live), planning the colour-blazing future of my blank-canvas garden and completing a further novel. I’m interested in what makes us humans tick and the wonderful and diverse ways in which we juggle the tricky business of living both inside a skin and outside it. Bantling is my first published novel. I’m available for readings and discussions.  I can be contacted at: author@marlowerussell.com
