Welcome to Ant Press, Vernon Lacey!

We’re delighted to announce we are working with Vernon Lacey on his lively “Barcelona” series of memoirs!

Vernon Lacey

Vernon is a teacher, guitarist, DIY hobbyist, and cycling fanatic. After a short career teaching in England, he set off for Barcelona where he worked in an international school. The experiences of his time in the Catalan capital — his often unintentionally comic attempts to speak Spanish, looking for somewhere to live, learning about the culture and making friends — inspired his first book, South to Barcelona. Just when he had cobbled enough Spanish together to fulfil a dream of learning the language and say the magical words ‘hablo Español’ — I speak Spanish — he met and married a German woman and moved with her to Munich where they now live with their two children.

Testimonials

Quite simply, Ant Press was fundamental to the success of my book. Self-publishing, particularly for a first-time author, feels daunting and lonely; Victoria’s input, proofing skills and thorough knowledge made the whole process easier and much more enjoyable. I cannot recommend Ant Press highly enough.
