About The Author

Saul Delino is a self-published author born in Chelsea, West London, to West Indian parents. After his initial education, he went on to train as an architect at DeMontfort University, Leicester, and South Bank University, London, achieving both BA (Hons) Architecture and Pg Dip Architecture, respectively. On leaving university, the building recession forced him to pursue an alternative career in recruitment, which he did for a number of years before training as a fitness professional, becoming a personal trainer and, for a brief period, a life coach. Most recently, he has been employed in the property development and telecoms industries. Since his ‘light bulb moment’ for the book that was to become Trespassers, he has indulged his passion for writing, determined to see his work published. In 2015, he set up Rubbanecka.com to showcase his urban vignettes and promote his books. Having written Trespassers, he turned his attention to creating the self-help writer's guide, Writing Fiction FFWD, to aid beginners struggling to get their novels off the ground. He has also written screenplays and published several works of poetry featured in different collections. When not chained to his laptop, he enjoys reading fiction and non-fiction, especially self-help and personal development books. He also a music and film lover and is learning Spanish and French with a view to travelling. He currently lives in London.
