I was born in 1951 in the small town of Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. LB is a small, market town in the South East of England whose main claim to fame is still the 1963 Great Train Robbery but it was, and is, home nonetheless.
I worked in most of the local factories in and around Leighton Buzzard as a teen before finding employment as a landscape gardener in the town and surrounding villages. This allowed time to encourage my love of books and go on to become a very accomplished dealer in modern first editions. The industry declined and I reluctantly turned to graphic design before embracing the world of post compulsory education.
Now I have turned to my own life diaries to publish the first installment of my memoirs.
