Julian Hoffman lives beside the Prespa Lakes in Greece, and earns his living monitoring vulnerable, upland bird species where wind farms have been built or proposed. Despite being easily distracted from his desk by the wonders outside, he has written for many publications including Kyoto Journal, Silk Road Review and Southern Humanities Review. His book, The Small Heart of Things: Being at Home in a Beckoning World, was published in 2013, and won a National Outdoor Book Award for Natural History Literature. He has recently finished a collection of short stories called All Those Places We Never Went and is working on a nonfiction book about the irreplaceable nature of wildlife.
