The author failed the 11-plus! He completed a sheet metal five-year apprenticeship at City and Guilds and acquired intermediate and final certificates. Born in Coventry, he spent his formative years in the city. He got married there, had three children and then got divorced after 16 years. His children and wife walked away. He was then employed as a successful salesman with a well-known large food company.
