Leslie Cameron lives near Mouse Valley in southern Scotland with two rescued dogs and a bag of golf clubs. He has written all his life – and freely admits that essay writing was only subject that earned any kind of marks at school. Before turning to fiction, Leslie earned his living as technical author – and has produced many volumes of user material for some of the world’s larger and more influential companies. He is married, has two daughters and enjoys the company of his five grandchildren, aged ten to twenty. Leslie is a sports fanatic; follows cricket and football – and plays mid-handicap golf as often as the weather will allow. Although officially retired, he now writes to earn the fare for his next foreign adventure. Most likely, to return to Thailand and to see his many friends.
