About the Author
Over 17 years a governor of a special school for children with a physical difficulty and an associated learning difficulty, chair of governors for most of that time.
His wife and partner, Ros, mirrored his concern for the disabled, volunteering teacher support. More importantly, until Sunderland's Labour-controlled Local Authority withdrew funding and closed down the Citizens' Advice Bureau, using her law degree she volunteered her time in its Tribunal Unit successfully representing clients claiming disability benefit.
A degree in Jurisprudence at Merton College, Oxford. A barrister, but practiced for only three years. Left the Bar to work for the Liberal Party in London. After that, until retirement in 1993, headed and grew a retail furniture company in NE England, now a nationwide company. Active in his trade association, played a lead role in the design of Flammability labels for sofas.
In his working life he was the director of the British Shops and Stores Association and chair of a nationwide committee that set up the Qualitas Conciliation (now known as the Furniture Ombudsman) for the Furniture and Carpet Industry.
Was for some years a Director of the Tyne & Wear Community Foundation.
Is, and has been for many years, chair of the board of a residential care home in Newcastle.
Recently chair of TYDFAS, the Newcastle branch of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies.
Throughout his life he came to realise that excellence is in the mind and comes from the heart, and that mediocrity gets you nowhere.
Travels widely, enjoys music and the arts and is never, ever bored.
If Great Britain had surrendered to Hitler, his life would have ended long ago in a gas chamber along with millions of others. Were it not for the medical profession and the NHS he would not be here today. Were it not for his teachers his life would not have been so rewarding. As a member of his local Rotary Club he sees his writing Death of a Nightingale as an act of Rotary service.
