Keith was born in Birmingham, England during WWII. He lived near factories which were regularly bombed by the Germans. This was a working class neighbourhood but he was able to pass an exam to go to Grammar School. He studied Science at school and when he left school worked in the chemical industry. He obtained a degree and then a PhD in Chemistry. He has worked in Universities in the US, Canada, Nigeria, Sudan, Japan and finally Australia.
One of his uncles told stories and that was what gave Keith the drive to write stories. After retirement Keith had the time to write stories about his experience. This story is largely fictional but relies a lot on Keith’s experience in the world.
