Mason Forbes was born and grew up in the United Kingdom and is of Anglo-German-Irish
heritage. After completing an economics degree at Queen’s university, he worked for an international engineering concern, before moving to Germany where he successfully ran his own business. Family reasons dictated a return to the UK.
He had for a number of years carried, in his head, the germ of an idea of an idea for a book,
and having been an avid and life-long reader of thrillers, he decided to transform the idea into reality. A decision which sparked a passion to write.
One of his favourite quotes is: The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.
