My name is Robert Dotchin and I’m an author. I was born in 1951 in a little village called Cleobury North, which is near Bridgnorth in Shropshire. That’s in England.
It’s in the middle of nowhere, just past the back of beyond. I was the third of five children. I had an older brother and sister and a younger brother and sister. That changed when we moved to Canada when I was five. Two sisters appeared, one in 1959 and the other in 1960.
We all grew up in Hamilton Ontario, just forty miles from Niagara Falls. By day my father was an electrical engineer and by night an amateur radio operator. He drove a 1957 Chevrolet and we occasionally went out in it on a Sunday. My mother really had her work cut out, cooking and cleaning for nine people.
I was unaware that I had an imagination until one of my teachers pointed it out to me. As usual, after a boring summer holiday, we had to write a composition about it.
I couldn’t just say that I went swimming, hiking and biking, so I invented a story about our camping trip in Algonquin Park, which was over two hundred miles north of where we lived. While the rest of the family were sleeping I saved them from being attacked by a black bear. My teacher, Mr Hanson, liked the story but he wasn’t too impressed with my handwriting. Yes, I owned up and told him that it never really happened.
This may not sound very wholesome, but I used to love Superman comics and Mad magazines. I also read “Gulliver’s Travels”, short science fiction stories, and books by Mark Twain. I progressed to every Sherlock Holmes story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and closed room mysteries. I also enjoyed Isaac Asimov’s books and astronomy, but my greatest love was, and still is, music.
When I was fifteen, we all moved back to England and my childhood may have not officially ended, but that is when I started working. I joined the Royal Air Force for nine years and for the next thirty-two years worked in logistics, in warehousing and trucking. I am married, have four children and ten grandchildren. When I retired I wrote "When the Hammer Falls", a novel from an idea I had years before. "Jack Hammer" is the re-edited version of that book and will be on Smashwords on the 15th of May 2015. I published a poetry book in called "The Ballad of Noodlyneeps and Other Poems".
