JONATHAN FRANKLIN wrote Two Owls at Eton while still at school. Published in 1960, a month before he left, it was serialised in the London Evening Standard and was in that paper's top-ten bestsellers list for a fortnight. In 2010 Country Life listed it as one of its five best nature books. Jonathan spent the next decade living and farming in Brazil. He is currently completing his novel Red Road Green; a love story set amid the destruction of the Amazon rainforest. He lives in Suffolk.
