Neil Flory does a lot of things. He plays the guitar and sings, does a bit of art, designs fishtanks, has started a clothing label and also works as a writer / creative director in advertising. By the time you read this, chances are he'll have added something else to that list. He has lived on three different continents in the last four years. He has one wife. And one son. One day, that one son asked him for a bedtime story. Neil promptly told him the story of The Short Giraffe. And thus began his journey into the world of children's stories. Now he can't stop writing them. And between you and me, he enjoys them a lot more than he does writing ads.
