Rob Hemming was born in Birmingham in 1956.
Educated at Prince Henry's Grammar School, Evesham, he dropped out of university
and spent the next twenty-five years in a variety of jobs including farmer,
local government officer, truck driver, salesman, decorator, patio designer,
classic car restorer, personal trainer and printer, before the penny finally
dropped that he was unemployable.
He therefore rekindled an old love affair
with creative writing, which now allows him to spend his days dreaming and
talking to himself. Besides, it's the one job in which his word is law.
