Jonathan Melmoth
Jonathan has fond memories of eating biscuits and reading Usborne books in his grandmother's cosiest armchair as a child, so it was only natural to end up eating biscuits and writing Usborne books as a grown-up. He studied Russian at university and his favourite topics to write about are history and geography, but he'll happily tackle any subject that might give him an edge in the next pub quiz.
