About Ben Hatch

Ben Hatch started out as a tea boy in the Royal Bank of Scotland. He became a recruitment consultant, sold advertising space then lawnmowers, worked in a video shop, as a postman and on the McDonald chicken sandwich station before finally becoming a journalist on various local papers. He quit reporting to become a novelist in 1997. He has written two works of Comedy fiction, "The Lawnmower Celebrity" and "The International Gooseberry" and is now on his third. Ben was tempted into travel writing by his wife Dinah who he lives with in Brighton. Together they authored "Frommer's Scotland With Your Family" and "Frommer's England With Your Family."Dinah Hatch went into travel journalism after deciding that crime reporting for local papers involved just a few too many evenings talking to dodgy people in dark alleys. Since then she has worked for a variety of national newspapers, magazines, trade publications and websites and writes extensively for the travel industry. Dinah co-authored "Frommer's Scotland With Your Family" and "Frommer's England With Your Family."show more
