Dispatch from the Razor's Edge, the Blog of Michael Stephen Fuchs
Day of Egregious Indulgence

So this was the Great Friday of 2012. The long years of my three-month contract with Directgov/Cabinet Office/Government Digital Service/www.gov.uk/whoever the hell we were this week were finally drawing to a close. I swear I thought I was going to die in that place, but I got out alive. And now it's on with the serious business of writing books and planning trips.

But first! our very dear Becky Shields was on the island again, due to being the wildly successful and in-demand architectural historian she is. And since she's become great friends with everyone's favourite fabuleuse femme franšaise, and since it was by far the nicest day of the year, we all repaired to the best spot in the universe: the garden of The Troubadour in Earl's Court, for pitchers of Pimms and a huge brunch. And all was sunshine and laughter. Man. (And thence to the pub abutting St. Lukes in Chelsea. Man again.)

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
