Author Bio

John Skinner began his career as a Jesuit. Leaving before ordination, he then became a journalist with The Times (London) before setting up his own children's bookselling company. He now writes full-time, specialising in the English mystics and in translating the spiritual classics across the centuries. His works include Julian of Norwich's Revelation of Love and The Confession of Saint Patrick, both of which have recently been published by Image Books. He lives with his wife, Judith, in Devon, England, where he is at work on a forthcoming collection of monastic writings.
