Michael Pearce

Michael Pearce was raised in Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, where his fascination for language began.

He later trained as a Russian interpreter but moved away from languages to follow an academic career, first as a lecturer in English and the History of Ideas, and then as an administrator.

He has a strong interest in human rights and in languages, both of which feature indirectly in his new series. Michael Pearce now lives in South-West London.
