Brought up in Liverpool, I attended Quarry Bank Comprehensive School before going on to university where I did both a degree and a Ph.D in Geology. After a year or more doing research in New Zealand, I was offered a job as a mining consultant in Australia allowing him to travel and work in many different parts of the world, including Africa. After three years I relocated to Vancouver, Canada when the company was bought by a group of South African engineers.
After a year or more in Vancouver, I was offered a job working in a small oil consultancy in the UK, and I took the opportunity to return home. I subsequently got married and had children, and then took the decision that the oil and mining industry was not as family-orientated as I would ideally like. I became a secondary school teacher, and now live in North Wales where my main pre-occupations, besides writing, are family, trout fishing, and the fortunes of the Welsh rugby team.
