I trained as a production engineer and subsequently become responsible for the production engineering of a range of air compressors for an international engineering company. I left in 1981 and spent the next 10 years working as a contract engineer, writing computer programmes for the aerospace industry in many different countries. Since returning home in 1991, I have worked as an independent supplier of engineering data to the aerospace industry. Apart from writing books about seventeenth century ship building , I am also researching my family history. I was amazed to discover that I am decendant of Saswallo, one of William The Conqueror's Knights, who was given the Manors of Edensor and Chatsworth.
