Scifari Irvin

I have a veterinary degree and PhD from Cambridge, and spent twenty years in Kenya researching a disease of cattle and wildlife which no one outside Africa has ever heard of. I travelled throughout the region and worked closely with international and local scientists as well as the diplomatic community and indigenous people such as the Maasai. I have camped among elephants, canoed among hippos and photographed a rhino in my pyjamas.
I published widely in the scientific literature but having returned to the UK, now write fiction for adults and children – all of which is set in hot places. I live in Suffolk where the nearest I now get to an off-road vehicle is a ride-on mower.
