About Stephen Gane

About The Author I'm Stephen Gane and I was born in Bath, Somerset, in 1948. I left school with no qualifications. I then found employment as an apprentice chef. I joined P&O and worked on cruise liners for a while. Then I moved to London where I ended my cooking career as head chef of a London Club. My character Liston Pearce's love of cookery is something he shares with me. My second career was selling antiques which I did until I retired. Suffering from dyslexia, I've always had problems with reading and spelling so writing a novel never entered my head. But, Christmas 2013, I had a dream and had to write the story. Seven weeks and three days later "A Questionable Hero" was finished. And now I have written the sequel and this novel about one of the characters. I hope you enjoy reading my novels as much as I enjoy writing them.show more
