About the Author

Jack Scott was born on a British armybase in Canterbury, England in 1960 and spent part of his childhood in Malaysiaas a 'forces brat.' A fondness for men in uniforms quickly developed. At theage of eighteen and determined to dodge further education, he became a shop boyon London's trendy King's Road: 'Days on the tills and nights on the tiles werethe best probation for a young gay man about town'. After two carefree years,Jack swapped sales for security and got a proper job with a pension attached.In his late forties, passionately dissatisfied with suburban life and middlemanagement, he and his husband abandoned the sanctuary of liberal London for anuncertain future in Turkey.

In 2010, Jack started an irreverentnarrative about his new life and Perkingthe Pansies quickly became one of the most popular English language blogsin Turkey. Within a year, he had been featured in the Turkish national press,had published numerous essays and articles in expat and travel magazines andhad contributed to the Huffington Post Union of Bloggers. As the blog developeda head of steam, a growing worldwide audience clamoured for a book. Jack dulyobliged and his hilarious (well, he thinks so) memoir, 'Perking the Pansies, Jack and Liam move to Turkey' was published in2011.

Jack's critically acclaimed debut bookwon two Rainbow Book Awards, was a shortlisted for the prestigious Polari FirstBook Prize and was featured in Time Out. The critical success of his debut bookopened up a whole new career for Jack. He now works as a freelance writer andauthor. In 2012, Jack and Liam ended their Anatolian affair and paddled back toBritain on the evening tide. They currently live in Norwich, a surprisingcathedral city in eastern England.
