Simon Wroe is an award-winning author, journalist and former chef.

Chop Chop, his debut novel about a raucous group of Camden chefs, was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Prize, longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize, and won a Betty Trask Award. Here Comes Trouble, his second novel, follows the teenage son of a newspaper editor in a post-Soviet country edging towards extremism and revolution, where the newspapers peddle outright lies and larger-than-life characters make promises they can’t keep.
