Born on the west coast of Canada in October 1947, I have lived the majority of my life in England, and went to school in the wilds of leafy Surrey. My childhood days were a mixture of innocent fun and adolescent confusion.
A sudden change in my career plans saw me switch from medical to business studies, and then into the wickedly wonderful world of international supply chain management. A career that ultimately took me to some of the most remote parts of the world in search of elusive products and suppliers.
Early in this process, a colleague introduced me to his airhostess girlfriend. Needless to say, I was smitten and within a few months we followed the footsteps of the stars and married at Caxton Hall in London.
Two children, three grandchildren and several business ventures later, I made the decision to retire and it was at this point my life took on a totally new direction, when my granddaughters introduced me to the magical land of bedtime stories.
The demand for ‘Dampa’s’ made up nursery rhymes moved progressively into a jointly inspired fantasy drama, that finely emerged as my first novel – The Blue Crown.
