"It's not uncommon for kids aged fifteen to go boozing in their local pub; it's a part of most of our lives from early on."

from a conversation with Eddie de Oliveira
Eddie de Oliveira was born to an Argentinean mother of Italian stock and a Brazilian father with ancestors from Scotland. This aristocratic footballing ethnicity has given him a combined total of ten World Cup wins to celebrate (none of them Scottish). When not winning World Cups, he can be found writing. Eddie is the author of the novels Lucky and Johnny Hazard. He currently lives outside London.
