During WW2 Gerry Wells crewed a Sherman tank of the Sherwood Ranges Yeomanry, a part of the 8th armoured Brigade, in Operation Overlord - from which experience as a young man comes Kicking The Hornets Nest. Since those soldiering days he has farmed, studied at university and latterly was a College lecturer in English Literature.
As a writer he has published his fiction, non-fiction and poetry in a wide range of periodicals both in the UK and abroad, and his work has featured in BBC Radio programmes and in local radio.
