Den Holson was born in Dundee, lived in Glasgow for a bit, then moved to Edinburgh. He now lives there with his wife and long time friend, who he met at university (in Edinburgh). They have two grown up children.

Once a milk boy, a sort of tailor, a library systems officer, and a digital research manager, he is now a writer and songsmith. He has recently produced an album of self-penned songs called 'Tell Tale Hat', a follow up to an earlier album called'Take Me As You Find Me', and has also self-published a book of 'short poems and other word games' called 'Disarmament Talks' and a novella-length work of fiction called 'Human'.

Den is largely a figment of his own imagination, but then, we're all a bit that way...
