Felix Taylor was born in London in 1980, and has lived there on and off ever since.

After studying at the University of Sussex in Brighton, he worked briefly in the music industry and in a number of other jobs before a ten-year stint in the-cut-and thrust world of advertising.

Always a keen reader and a lover of jokes and stories, he has tried his hand at stand-up and both written for and participated in live sketch shows such as News revue.

As the son of a French mother and English father, he is one of the very few who appreciate the merits of both Marmite and the mysterious andouillette of Eastern and Northern France. Serve Cold is his first novel.
