- Author BiographyAlexander Lindsay was born in Ayrshire, Scotland. As an international journalist he has lived and worked in the Middle East, New York, Paris, the UK, Ireland and the Greek Islands. Based in Belfast, he covered the Northern Ireland conflict as staff correspondent for the Sunday Express, during which time his main claim to fame was being ignominiously blown off the lavatory seat by an IRA bomb at his office. He sustained moderate injuries to his head and major ones to his dignity. He has been a newspaper and magazine editor, national newspaper theatre critic, feature writer and magazine columnist. Some of his assignments included flying as part of a trapeze act, doing battle as a knight of Camelot (Sir Lackalot, the Shortest Knight of the Year) and having an ice cream named after him; Gelato Alexander, a somewhat academic concoction of Gorgonzola cheese and onion.
