About the Author: Ian Wood

Ian Wood was born in Temple Newsam in Leeds in 1971, He attended the local primary school where he was voted the boy least likely to succeed. After drifting aimlessly through the comprehensive education system he washed up on the shores of Huddersfield Polytechnic from where he graduated as a Bachelor of Engineering, possibly the most illegible bachelor in town. Since graduating Ian has worked for a number of local engineering companies where he has defied the laws of physics, sometimes intentionally. Ian started following the distinct lack of success of Huddersfield Town AFC shortly after realising they weren’t called Huddersfield Town Nil. In 2001 Ian was an angry young man with a wife, a child and a mortgage. By 2002 Ian was a bitter old man with none of the above. This transition was achieved without any of the farcical events described in his first novel ‘Here’s 2 Absent Fathers’ and he has solicitors who can prove it.

Fathers 4 Justice have done a wonderful job bringing the issue of fathers contact with their children to the public notice and Ian Wood was one of their many members who didn’t climb very high and generally plays down any petty vandalism he was responsible for. Although Ian realises their is no credit in cashing in on someone else’s misery he is conscious a whole branch of the Legal profession exists to do just that and consequently publishes this novel with the hope it generates enough money to pay his legal fees.
