Author: Ray Smith (with  Andrew Crofts)

 RAY SMITH was born in Peterborough and joined the Navy as a teenager in order to see the world. On his return he became a nurse and then a social worker, during which time he met and married Grace. Having settled in Scotland and had three sons, Ray became a travelling art dealer and a familiar figure around the wealthier areas of the country with his van and his dog, selling pictures and sculptures. He gave up the business when Grace became ill in order to care for her. He has now returned to Peterborough. Ray has worked with the Alzheimer’s Society on quality research in dementia.

   ANDREW CROFTS is a bestselling author with a number of high-profile human-interest stories to his name. Most recently, he co-wrote the Sunday Times top ten bestseller The Kid.
