Paul Dimmock – Chief Copy Editor
In the beginning was the word… and coincidently this is what led to Paul’s love of reading. From the Bible to the Bhagavad Gita and countless other texts and mythologies, his passion for the analysis of religions led to a Doctorate in Theology and Religious Studies from King’s College London. Since graduation, Paul has worked as a Visiting Lecturer and Copy-Editor. An avid traveller, he currently resides in Muscat, Oman and is writing a book on Mosaic typology in the Gospel of Matthew.
Alexandra always wanted to be a writer. After studying maths and archaeology at university, she spent a decade developing storylines, and writing and editing text, for museums. She also has written poems, some of which have been published. In between all of that Alexandra embarked on a pretty niche quest: following in the footsteps of the Viking Eric the Red. Her memoir of that journey, called Looking for Eric, will be released in November 2017.
