About the Author
At the University of Stirling Alastair studied History and Religious studies as well as gaining a diploma in Education.
After university one of life's strange turns led him and his wife to the South East where he taught in primary schools for 12 years.
Three years ago his son, or as he calls him, his 'tormentor' arrived and turned everything upside down in the best of ways.
Callum was the main reason they wanted to head back over the border and settle nearer to family, grandparents in particular. Having lived in the middle of a large town for several years, the call of Scotland was proving hard to resist.
He is now enjoying living in the beautiful Scottish Borders in Galashiels and has added to the Jamieson family with another son.
After teaching and being an integral part of the school community for over a decade, Alastair felt it was time for a new challenge in his professional career.
He says; "I would like to give something back to the education system that I benefited greatly from myself by writing some great books to inspire readers young and old."
Being a teacher gave him invaluable experience of what it is young people like to read about. Planning lessons and going over pupils' work also honed the kind of skills needed to develop and edit a piece of fiction.
