I am Stuart Lennon
I was born in 1970 in Bristol, England. I worked in, and around, retail financial services for 26 years in many different countries. For the most part I worked in foreign exchange and money transfer. I held every position and job role, from the frontline on the counters to the dark, hushed rooms of the Compliance department.
My favourite job title was Group Operations Director, or GOD for short.
In 2004 I set up a business with a friend which specialised in money changing and money moving. At the end of 2014, we sold the business to a money transfer giant from the US. I keep my hand in, consulting for a few clients. After a brief and tasteful period of navel-gazing, I indulged a long-held idea that I should be a writer and began my first novel.
I intend to publish this by the end of 2016. There is a real chance that my wife will hit me with a frying pan if I don’t publish. I will record my experience of being a writer here.
When I am not writing, I play golf, drink wine and walk my dog. Not always at the same time and not always in that order.
