H. R. JAKES, a writer who lives in Texas, pens the Curious Autobiography series. He compiled the story of his mother, Elaine Jakes. He has been writing all his life, and she thus felt confident to entrust him with that task. Through him, further books in this series will be forthcoming, first among them Curious Recipes: The Mostly Welsh Cookbook of Elaine Jakes, a charming (and tasty) combination of Elaine’s tales with detailed recipes, featuring as an aspect of every vignette the story behind each culinary delight.

He has 7 children, speaks with pen, is a polyglot, and bikes a lot.
