About the Author
Neil is a Yorkshire lad. Born in Charlotte Road in Sheffield he has lived all his life in this part of Yorkshire except for the four years he was an evacuee to County Cork between 1939 and 1943 and while getting his wings at Cranwell in the 1950s.
After leaving the RAF he followed a family tradition of steel-making. His grandfather was a forgemaster for Cammell Laird who made his reputation with big stuff, including navy gun barrels. Neil also spent several years with the Probabation Service before becoming a practicing hypnotherapist.
His book Neil's War: One boy's story of his evacuation to Ireland at the outbreak of WWII, was written soon after his retirement. For something to do probably and also, as he says, to find answers to questions that had been bothering him for a while. He has published other books and continues to write. There can't be many people at eighty-something taking up writing as a new career, though it is of course, the new sixty.
