Meg Clothier has sailed from England to Alaska, worked as a journalist in London and Moscow, published two historical novels and run a London park cafe. She now lives, writes and grows vegetables on the Quantock Hills, but likes nothing better than getting cold, wet and hungry at the seaside, because then she can get warm and dry, drink gin and play Risk. Her brother, Chris Clothier, has sailed singlehanded from Scotland to Norway, found himself upside down in a yacht in the Southern Oceanandwon countless dinghy races using all the deviousness he fails to bring to the Risk board. Nowadays, he lives in London where he keeps a weather eye on other people's money - when he's not daydreaming about kitesurfing for breakfast and barbecued mackerel for tea.
