About the Author: Helen Scales

In their review of my first book, Poseidon s Steed, the Economist called me The aptly named Helen Scales and I guess they re right I do have a bit of a thing about fish get it.Across the airways and in print, I m noted for my distinctive and occasionally offbeat voice that combines a scuba diver s devotion to exploring the oceans, a scientist s geeky attention to detail, a conservationist s angst about the state of the planet, and a storyteller s obsession with words and ideas.I have a Cambridge PhD and a monofin, I ve drunk champagne with David Attenborough and talked seahorse sex on the Diane Rehm show I spent four years on and off chasing after big fish in Borneo and another year cataloguing marine life surrounding 100 Andaman Sea islands.These days I write books and articles, I make podcasts and radio, travel the world in search of stories, and do my best to spend as much time as I can in the sea as a scuba diver, free diver and rookie surfer I m a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a member of the steering committee for the Museum of Curiosity I m also a proud aunt, I sew dresses, grow organic vegetables, put on high heels and dance Argentine tango, play piano, sing in the shower, and make a mess in a printmaking studio.
