E. L. Darbishire was born and raised in South West Wales, which he still regards as home. After graduating, he joined a multi-national agricultural company and saw service in the UK, the US, Mexico, Canada and Malta.
In the mid-80s, his career went off at a tangent when he was head hunted to try to revive an ailing movie studio in Malta. He remained in the film industry for a dozen or so years before embarking on the final stage of his career so far, as a journalist. He wrote articles for some of Malta's English language newspapers and edited a monthly culture magazine.
He is married to Nicky and these days they divide their time between a crumbling farmhouse in Malta and a small house in Gozo.
