Ken was born in rural Norfolk during a period of austerity following the Second World War. He was sent to boarding school at the age of thirteen before later living and working in the Middle East, Nigeria and Spain.
Having eventually returned to his roots and resettled in Norfolk, Ken suffered a number of heart failures in the summer of 2009. Following a near-death experience, Ken had a supernatural encounter which inspired him to pick up a pen and begin his writing career.
Ken joined Sweet Cherry in 2012, and co-authored The Diaries of Robin’s Toys and The Diaries of Robin’s Travels with his daughter, Angie.
