About the author
Steve France was born in Birmingham. After school, and for no other reason than he thought the world seemed a big and glorious place, he decided to travel. After trips to the States and Canada, he spent years taking casual jobs and hitchhiking and bussing his way around the world. Overland to India by bus; through China and Russia by train and everywhere else by any means available.
Years later, on his return to England, he set up a management development company and wrote his first management book. Since then he has had a volume of poetry published and has written several novels.
He is married, and together with his wife, continues to travel, most recently to South America, Antarctica and the Canadian Arctic.
