I live in Helensburgh, Scotland, with my wife, Sallie, and our cat, Orlando. I am coming up for my 85 th birthday, so I can claim to have ‘insider knowledge’ about later life. My two most recent books Autumn Voices and The New Frontier have both been about people who lead active, creative lives in later life.
