George is married with two grown sons. He is a retired technician in computer manufacturing and lives in Ayrshire.
When not there, he can be found at his static caravan near the Solway Firth, looking directly out on to the Irish Sea, and if not, he will be in Canada with his older son and family.
He was in the Royal Military Police (TA) for twenty years.
Inspiration for Clans came from years of camping and trekking in Scotland and Canada.
