Dr. Mike Bent was born near Manchester in 1956, but spent most of his formative years living in deep rural Somerset. He read Geography at Downing College, Cambridge, and Transport Studies at Cranfield Institute of Technology, Bedfordshire. In 1987 he abandoned England in favour of northern Spain, then spent three years in northeast Poland. Having endured many years teaching various foregn languages to increasingly recalcitrant pupils (both in spain and Poland), he is now a full-time correspondent for a number of European rail transport and technology journals. He has also written several books on Norwegian and Spanish public transport history, as well as a guide book to northern Spain. At present he is preparing a series of books in Spanish on the regional history of Spanish railways, as well as working on a second novel. In his spare time (frustratingly limited) he enjoys gardening, cooking (and consuming the end products thereof), walking, reading, and exploring the byways of rural Europe by car and train. He lives in an old house of great character and much woodworm in an Arcadian valley in the Principalidad de Asturias, in northern Spain.
