Welcome to my book shelves
Baz Baron is a Yorkshire man who lives close to the east coast and writes children’s stories. Several years after starting his working life as a Master Baker and acquiring his own baker’s shop – adventure and the great outdoors beckoned.
He then spent the next twelve years in the Royal Engineers rising to the rank of Staff Sergeant. Travelling throughout Western Europe with the army; keeping the peace during the latter part of the ‘Cold War’.
During the late seventies he spent two years as the lead singer with a local sixties revival club band, taking lots of bookings in the then, miners and working men’s clubs of West Yorkshire which he thoroughly enjoyed. Due to marriage and helping to raise four wonderful children he needed to settle for a life of domesticity.
Always a people person, in his spare time he engaged on a Social and Behavioural Studies degree course at the University of Hull. He believes that it was whilst researching and writing assignments for the degree, a spark ignited the fire for writing.
After early retirement he took on the part-time post of care-taker at a local primary school where he feels like the surrogate grandfather to three hundred children. He enjoys walking and camping in the wild and beautiful landscape of the Scottish Highlands.
