An entertainment for children
Maud Coleno's Daughter - is the result of a chance piece of family research. Born during the Second World War in Gwaunfarren House Merthyr Tydfil . Following his solitary childhood accompanying his mother, a war-widowed cook serving in a succession of country houses, allowed him to contrast adult society from both sides of the green baize door. Leading to an interest in social and historical exploration, the research led to the discovery of Maud Coleno's actual daughter -the 'lost child', in South Africa. see photo.
A Welsh childhood, fed his love of rugby, and a life-long fascination with travel, history and the sea. After school, taking a season as a barman at Butlins, and hitch-hiking through Europe, he joined the illustrious travel firm of Thomas Cook in London. The insatiable demands of the firm's rugby club 'apres game' life, led to moonlighting at Norman Balon's Coach & Horses pub in Bohemian Soho. Served briefly in the Royal Naval Reserve. His numerous travel clients ranged from ex war-time SOE agents to artists, authors and MP's, to spies, journalists and the clergy - including executives from business and commerce, some of whom were lampooned in 'Private Eye'. He is widely travelled, the family home shared with dogs was in Sussex for many years, now lives and writes in Cornwall.
