The time came he yearned for change and began studying. After gaining a BSc. degree in mathematics and computing, he worked his way through the ranks in the IT sector, but his love was reading and fiction writing his ambition. Life came together when he got an early retirement at fifty and he embraced the opportunity to pursue his dream seriously.
