Author Information
Glancy, Robert

I was born in Zambia and raised in Malawi – a country known as the Warm Heart of Africa but made famous as the place where Madonna finds her children. 

At 14 I moved from the warm heart of Africa to the cold lungs of Edinburgh, where I discovered the true meaning of the term ‘culture shock’. 

After Edinburgh I studied history at Cambridge. Then off to London where, before I had time to find a career, a career in communications found me.
