About the author

Bryan is a retired business owner, married with a grown up family and grandchildren. He spent his early years on a farm, before setting up an electronics company manufacturing beauty equipment. He showed their equipment at trade shows and exhibitions around the world. After 30 years of running his successful business, he retired to fulfill his passion for gardening and writing. He had completed two drafts of ‘The Nene Queen’ when they lost their German Shepherd Gemma. He felt compelled to write this personal memoir of a rescued dog and her devoted owners. ‘The life and times of Gemma’ is a touching tribute to her charismatic character and the profound impact she left on him.
