More About the Author

Philip Dalling is a journalist and author with a particular interest in speedway racing. He has covered the sport for some 40 years and in that time has met and interviewed many of its leading personalities. He is an associate member of the World Speedway Riders Association.

Born in Derby, he grew up in the Erewash Valley and his first job was with his hometown newspaper, The Long Eaton Advertiser, now sadly defunct. He first covered speedway racing at the Station Road home of the Long Eaton Archers, in the 1960s.

In 1980 he published his first book, Erewash Valley Portrait, which looked at the changing face of the landscape which forms the background to many of the finest novels of D H Lawrence, notably Sons and Lovers and The Rainbow.

Following a career in newspapers and in media relations with the former British Steel Corporation, the Central Office of Information and The University of Nottingham, where he was Director of Public Affairs for 22 years, he now lives on Exmoor, close to the Devon/Somerset border.

He is pictured in The Valley of Rocks, Near Lynton.

He works as a freelance journalist and is the Exmoor correspondent for Devon Life magazine.
