Born in a land far away south of Faroe, JOHN K. V. EUNSON moved to Edinburgh in search of escalators and the chance to read a daily newspaper before 11 a.m. He works in an office which is lightly purple in colour and plays five-a-side football on Wednesdays. John has been interested in sheep since he was a child. His first ever pet was an orphaned lamb. He named her Tulip and looked after her diligently until she was eaten eighteen months later.
