Meet the Author

Despite being 'asked to leave' school at 16, Brian Bailie has made his mark as an entrepreneur in a variety of creative enterprises including commercial artist, furniture designer, product design consultant, copywriter, and mentor. In 1999 Brian was elected a member of the Chartered Society of Designers, and a professional member of American Society of Furniture Designers.

By 2003 the international demand of his licensed products led Brian to establish a manufacturing operation in China with a couple of Texan expats based in Hangzhou. Today this business manages the China-side manufacturing and marketing activities for ambitious Western businesses, ensuring that their clients reap the benefits of doing business in China.

Brian's other books include: Alzheimer's Timeline, a lay-men's study of dementia in the family ; The Broncle, a curious tale of adoption and reunion; and Raising a Smile, a children's book of story and rhymes, in support of NI Children's Hospice.
