Before deciding to write books, John Sedden was a postman (who kept getting lost), a gardener (who nurtured weeds), a civil servant (who wasn’t very civil), a cardboard box maker (who got bored), a census enumerator (who couldn’t add up) and a teacher (who couldn’t teach). He decided to become a librarian and author before he could do any more damage to society.
John has written five books and numerous articles on Hampshire life and history. His first children’s thriller/mystery, Mudlark, was published in 2005. He is currently working on his second.
John lives on the south coast with Irene, and daughter Karen.
