Graham Cann was born in East Sussex in the UK and started writing short stories when he was 10 years old and such was his enthusiasm that he sent a story off to Thomas Nelson Publishers in 1964. Unsurprisingly, the Mystery at Holly Mansion was never published but a seed had been sown.
After attempting and failing to land a job in journalism, he settled down, got married and moved north to Norfolk in search of ‘The Good Life’ setting up a smallholding with his wife, two sons and a menagerie of animals.
Time passed and eventually the writing gene that had lain dormant resurfaced much later in life and he now has three books in print. He also writes a monthly walking column for East Anglian’s ‘Let’s Talk’ magazine.
His other passions are growing fruit and veg, rambling and escapist stuff like James Bond films. He and his wife Jules manage Chas Cann Publishers, publishing their own books and helping other authors see their names in print. (Amazon)
I was born in the UK and brought up on the idyllic East Sussex coast and have many memories of riding on the south downs and whiling away the hours by the sea.
After getting married to Graham we both decided it was time to ‘up-sticks’ and move elsewhere so ended up buying a small-holding in Norfolk where our boys spent their early years. Now 40 years on we are the proud grandparents to 4 boys and a grand-daughter.
My parents’ ethos was always to work hard and be independent. Never one to sit on my laurels the recent appalling Covid-19 lockdown, gave me the time to learn a new skill and work with Graham to build a new career and business.
The future? Well we can do this anywhere in the world, so you never know what is around the corner? (Amazon)
