About the Author:

Bernard F Carter has a photographic background, but spent much of his working life as a Botanical Artist and Illustrator. Both professions allowed him to travel, observe and experience everything around him, thus was born his great love of the outdoors and in particular his passion for the English countryside. His imaginative and illustrative style of writing has been very much influenced by writers of the 19th and early 20th century, such as Richard Jeffries, Edward Thomas, Flora Thompson and Mary Russell Mitford to name but a few, all of who had a keen eye for intimate detail and highly descriptive prose. He is the author and illustrator of The Floral Birthday Book (Webb & Bower) and the small collection of Short Essays of the Tamar Valley. Over the years he has had numerous magazine articles published along with some poetry.
