I was born in Essex in 1947 and have lived in
Australia and Switzerland as well as England. After
a varied career in physics research, software engineering, project management,
marketing and journalism, I have spent the last dozen or so years involved in
historical research and writing. When younger I visited over 50 countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas for pleasure, but now my travels are mainly driven by the needs of my research.
I live in Cholsey, Oxfordshire in England and am married with two grown-up children. My email address is bc AT bjc.me.uk. (replace AT with the @ symbol).
