Countdown with Will Dean
Interviewed 27 November 2021
Will Dean lives in a vast forest in Sweden, where his Tuva Moodyson thrillers are set. He was brought up in the East Midlands and studied law at the LSE. While working in the City, he spent years commuting from London at weekends to build the forest home in Sweden where he now lives with his wife and son, writing full time. He and his wife designed their new life to be as self-sufficient and low cost as possible. They grow their own food, forage in summer and autumn, take water from their own well, and use their own timber for heating and cooking. Will's interests other than writing and reading are painting, nature (living in it, watching it, preserving it), cooking, travel, repairing old mechanical watches, sea kayaking and movies.
