John was born in a small town in Somerset, England, and brought up in Woolwich, a worn down, largely military part of South East London. The Beresford Square market was very much the focal point of the area, and the people who owned the barrows were almost all second or third generation, and real slick salesmen. My brother was in the Merchant Navy and had visited NZ several times. When he told me that the pavements in Queen Street in Auckland had a white line down the middle I knew that there was a place I wanted to see. I started writing after a creative writing class with Michael Morrissey at Mt. Albert Grammar and discovered how much I liked building a story.
