About the Author
Trevor Sproston was born 1944 into a mining family in a community mirrored in "Damp Legacy" and lived there all his life. He is now retired, living alone and is somewhat reclusive since his children have grown up and left the family home. He spends much of his free time writing. His career has been varied, culminating in music teacher and musical director; he has an interest in local politics and is still an elected member of his local council from where he derives a great deal of his material by observation.
