About the author

I spent my early years on a farm, before moving to the city to carve out a new career in electronic engineering. In 1984 I set up a family run company, manufacturing beauty equipment for worldwide export. That involved many years of travelling to trade shows around the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA. After 30 years of running a successful business, I retired to write about those early adventures on a farm and messing about on a derelict tugboat called The Nene Queen.  Suddenly, we lost our German Shepherd Gemma, I was devastated, and decided to share her journey through life with other pet lovers. From the minute we rescued her, to the final chapter in her life,  The life and times of Gemma, is a personal memoir of a rescue dog and her devoted owners. We shared three years in our English country garden, before flying to her new home in America. Walking round the lakes and foothills of Northen Califonia was awesome, sadly, Gemma was taken before her time. The heartfelt words are a touching tribute to her charismatic life, and the profound impact she left on mine.
