Product description

About the Author

Stephen Chance was born into a family of generations of steelworkers in Redcar, north Yorkshire. Growing up close to both heavy industry and stark moorland, this background informs his first novel - The Alum Maker’s Secret. His limited edition book Cargo Fleet was presented to the president of SSI, the Thai steel conglomerate, as part of successful negotiations to secure the takeover and reopening of the Teesside casting plant and furnaces. The Alum Maker’s Secret was catalysed by his stumbling across the remains of alum workings on a Yorkshire cliff top.
