John Sissons

John is retired and lives with his wife Mary in the village of Colne. As a youngster, he enjoyed the rural life of Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire and villages in Shropshire. During further education, he studied agricultural science and chemistry, and awarded a PhD from Reading University. Subsequently, he was employed in the National Institute for Research in Dairying, and later worked for an international company based in St. Louis, Missouri. John’s love of telling yarns stems from listening to fireside tales  told by his Grandfather. More recently, his passion has been nurtured through adult education courses on creative writing, and as a member of the Huntingdon Writers Group. His endeavour is to write and narrate stories that have elements of curiosity and humour.
