Born in Cape Town and educated at Selborne College in East London (The South African one, not the other place in the UK), Patrick is a published technical author and a now retired Fire Fighter and lecturer after thirty-six years of soot, heat, blood, sweat and laughter. He has spent the last twenty-three years in England and now lives in Germany. He is a Licensed Minister in the Church of England, has three adult children of whom he is enormously proud, and has created this series of books in pursuit of his own dreams of spacefaring and adventure.
