More About the Author
Having brushed with the security Services in his late teens and early twenties Jan Kusmirek went on to become one of the world's leading authorities on aromatic skin care, medicine and aromacosmetology. He has lectured around the world and is a prolific writer with many papers and articles published on the subject. His two non fiction books Aromatherapy for the Family and Liquid Sunshine have become standards in the profession and related industries.
He is still very active in the organic movement and is a strong supporter of sustainable farming. Finding and designing new applications for novel crops remains part of his ethos in his world of applied aromatics.
Work enambled him to become a world traveller, spending much time in the Far East and Eastern Europe meeting and listening to a diversity of people. Their lives and experiences inspired his first novel The Engineer.
His trilogy Chronicles of Love and Honour concerns the events and personalities that moulded and squandered the lives of the ordinary people of Europe who sought no more than a better life through revolution, war and social change in the twentieth century.
Today Jan divides his time between the Carpathian Mountains of Poland and the Somerset Levels of England.
