  About the author  

Born in Lambeth on St.Valentine’s day in 1933, two weeks after Hitler became Chancellor of Germany, he spent a somewhat bemused childhood enlivened mainly by chasing doodlebugs in WW2 for the shrapnel that every schoolboy collected.

After grammar school he was press-ganged into the RAF for two years National Service as a radar mechanic, being demobbed on Coronation Day in 1953.

Spending two years as a pianist with the Crane River Jazzband he then emigrated to Australia in 1959, returning five years later with a fondness for all matters Oz.

His first published work was a novella called ‘The Seekers’ in the very first three issues of ‘19’ magazine in 1968, copies of which he still has, hidden in a deep dark drawer.

A bronchial asthmatic he has a generous belly cultivated largely from meat pies and sausages, and excuses himself on the grounds that every man is entitled to one foolishness. Author of the Seedbearers trilogy he has two daughters from whom he learnt a great deal.

His politics are centrist, his philosophy Platonistic, his humour Rabelasian, and his deep lifelong interest in all matters esoteric is the very well-spring of his being.
