About The Author
After studying chemistry at Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, Colin Litten-Brown spent the first twenty years of his career developing household products for a number of major fast moving consumer goods companies and has realised just what a silly job that really was. Even sillier, he has more recently been running his own product development consultancy, Atopia Innovation, at the time in the economic downturn where nobody can afford consultants. During his career it seemed like a good idea at the time to undertake a part-time Ph.D., a part-time MBA and a part-time single-subject higher diploma in intellectual property law as well as a diploma in basic electronics, indicating that he had far too much time on his hands back then. He still has far too much time on his hands but now devotes that energy to fiction rather than fact.
With nearly 100 patents to his name (regrettably all owned by someone else) and several products launched on the market (also owned by someone else), he has a track record of creativity and innovation (but not profit) that stems back to his school days where, with a friend, he built a full-sized Dalek complete with electronic voice. Although trained as a chemist he dabbles professionally in a multitude of disciplines such as packaging, formulation, electronics and product design.
