In a 40 year international business career, John Lynch lived and worked on every continent except Antarctica. On retiring, he published The International Sales Handbook. He first became a published writer in 1989 and for the last five years has been one of the two directors of Mandrill Press, a small British publishing company. He has published a number of books in his own name and has ghost written more than 60 books published in the names of other people (not all of whom actually exist). He knows how to survive in the jungle that is international business, and he knows what one writer's book is published and another's is not - and how the unpublished writer can bring his book up to scratch.
