Will Buckingham is a writer and philosopher based in Leicester, UK, where he is currently Reader in Creative Writing in the School of Humanities at „De Montfort“ University. I write mainly fiction, philosophy and for children 

He has has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne (1994), a Masters degree in anthropology from Durham (1997) and a PhD in philosophy from Staffordshire University (2007). He started writing fiction seriously he was in the Tanimbar islands in Indonesia, where he was undertaking research into indigenous traditions and economies of art. The Tanimbar islands were rich in stories; and so, one rainy afternoon, he sat in front of a battered old manual typewriter, and started to write stories of my own.

My PhD in philosophy, which explored amongst other things ethics, storytelling and the curious ways of obscure Indonesian gods, was completed in 2007. Meanwhile, his first novel, which drew heavily on my experience in Indonesia, was published by Tindal Street Press. Since then, he has published two philosophy books (with one more forthcoming), as well as a second novel and a children’s picture book.
