I spent most of my career teaching, then retired to live in a beautiful part of Perthshire, Scotland. From my study window I often see a variety of wildlife - pheasant, partridge, rook, woodpecker, red squirrel and deer. And at night, I go to sleep to the sound of owls hooting or foxes barking.
For years I had promised myself that some day I would write down all those wonderful stories that had been gathering in my head. Now that I had a rich landscape to draw on and a ready supply of animal 'characters', each with its own personality, there was no excuse. So the Colonel's Collection was born! To date, the first six in the series have been published.
