I was born in Northampton in 1977, I read English at Edinburgh University and on graduation in 2000 began working for BBC News in various locations in the UK.
I worked on the Today programme, considered one of the most important news programmes in Britain, plus the BBC's political unit over the road from Big Ben.
I started writing Joe is Online in 2007 and it took me 3 years, although once I quit the BBC it happened a lot more quickly.
I also do voiceover work, coach radio presenters and run a political blog. I'm writing my second novel, which is narrated by a Prime Minister's wife.
Joe Is Online - an epistolary novel on cyberterrorism told through blogs, emails, diary entries, chatroom logs and news sites. Published March 2011. More details at http://www.chriswimpress.co.uk
