KARL BEECHER worked for over a decade as a software developer before deciding that a 'proper' job wasn't for him. He has since escaped and followed an ambition he's possessed since childhood to become an author. He writes both fiction and non-fiction. 

His fiction includes The Interstellar Caveman, a series of comedy sci-fi novels. 

His non-fiction books mainly cover science and technology, but he can't resist putting a few jokes in those too. Examples include: Brown Dogs and Barbers, a popular science book explaining the fundamentals of computer science, and Bad Programming Practices 101, an introductory manual to coding that instructs the reader how to program badly.

Karl was born and raised in England, but now lives in Germany with his family.
