About the Author
I was born and raised in Northern Ireland, and have travelled extensively in both western and eastern Europe, mostly by bicycle, with “working sojourns” in Norway, Austria and England. My adventuring over, I settled down to studies, and obtained a BA in Geography from the Queen’s University of Belfast. As a student there I became involved in the activism described in my novel and took part in protests demanding reforms in Northern Ireland. To my parents’ relief, I then emigrated to Canada where I took an MSc at the University of Calgary and studied for my PhD at McGill University in Montreal. In Montreal I started a long career as a university lecturer in Geography.
