Niall MacRoslin was born in 1984 and educated in Edinburgh. After obtaining a First in Modern Languages at Trinity College, Dublin he returned to Scotland to study for a Masters degree in Translation. He has since worked as a translator, book reviewer and secondary school teacher. Project Black Hungarian, co-authored with Alice N. York and based on the events of the 2013 electric vehicle expedition WAVE, is his first novel.

Now resident in London, Niall continues to combine teaching and writing commitments, and dreams, one day, of devoting himself entirely to the latter.
