About John Ingamells
After graduating in Modern Languages, John joined the Diplomatic Service. He served as Political Secretary to the British Embassy in Seoul from 1985 to 1990 and as Press Attaché at the embassy in Buenos Aires 1990–1994. In 2000, he moved to the City where he was Director of Public Affairs at a large fund management house. After the crash in 2009, he moved to the City of London Corporation (the Square Mile’s local government).
In 2015, he and his wife, Wendy, escaped the rat race by moving to North Norfolk where he set himself up as a freelance editor and proofreader. He has worked mostly on academic projects with some business and fiction thrown in.
He fancies himself as a cook and bakes his own sourdough bread. But he is never happier than when sitting at the backgammon board.
