About the Author: B. Victor Preston

B. Victor Preston is a "middle-aged I guess" writer who lives in the creative Inner West of Sydney, Australia. His father was born in northern England of Yorkshire stock, but migrated "Down Under" with his own parents as a young man. Meanwhile the author's great-grandparents on his mother's side migrated from north of the Arctic Circle in Norway to the sugar cane-cutting Bundaberg region of the northern Australian state of Queensland in the 1880s - a fearsome climate shift. Another ancestor was a Danish sea captain. His paternal grandmother was a Burns, the Scottish link in the family, and there are Irish connections too.

A former librarian who has run a book website since 2001, the author is a keen history buff whose other interests include heritage architecture, art, gardening and music. He also likes travel and enjoys ships ("I never get seasick," he says proudly, "I think it must be my Viking blood"). He has been to the United States twice, lived in England and New Zealand at various stages and enjoyed exploring Europe in his youth - his favourite city is Paris.
