About the author

Author Ian Coates graduated with honours in engineering. He worked in the high-tech electronics industry for over twenty-five years, where he specialised in the design of radio communication equipment. His intimate knowledge of that environment always triggered his imagination to think about the mysterious world of international spies. 

A lifelong love of books led him into writing, but it was being named one of the winners in the Writers? & Artists? Yearbook centenary novel writing competition that spurred him on to complete his thriller, Eavesdrop.

The novel was written largely on planes and in airport lounges as well as in snatched moments before starting work each morning. Eavesdrop is scheduled for release later this year by Bad Day Books, an imprint of Assent Publishing.

Ian lives and writes in Buckinghamshire, England, with his wife and two daughters.
