Phillip Donnelly

After completing a psychology degree, the author realised he was profoundly misanthropic. So, he set about travelling the world, to try to find understanding aliens, who might take him to another planet.

Unable to speak any foreign languages, and almost incapable of holding a conversation in his own, he decided to teach English as a foreign language. This was the only job that would allow him to travel widely, without any marketable talents, noticeable intelligence, or interpersonal skills. He has unsuccessfully searched for life from outer space in classrooms and staff rooms in the following countries: Spain, China, Russia, Thailand, the UAE, Sri Lanka, Lebanon, Vietnam, Oman and France. He currently lives in Hong Kong, with his patient and long-suffering wife.

Undeterred by his complete failure to make first contact, he plans to continue his search for extra-terrestrials, in other parts of the world. He would be most obliged if any aliens reading this would spirit him off, to an altogether more exotic planet, in an altogether more harmonious dimension. Failing that, he will continue to write about people, in novels and travelogues.
