Stuart C. Billingham

Stuart worked for forty years in further and higher education, first as a lecturer, progressing to becoming a university principal lecturer and eventually a university pro vice chancellor (vice president), before retiring from full-time work in 2010. Stuart is widely published in the academic world, but A Shoelace, a Paper Clip and a Pencil is his first foray into fiction. For his 'sins', as he says, he supports his hometown soccer team West Bromwich Albion and (sometimes) enjoys playing golf. He lives between York in Northern England and their house in Spain with his wife Dilys.
