Author Biography

C. A. Powell was born in the East London district of Bow during the year 1961. He went to school and grew up in the East London district Poplar, Limehouse and then Teviot Street until age eleven. From then on, he went to school in Hornchurch, Essex.

His growing up years were very happy ones and he found far too many things interesting and facinating - so many that he has no time to follow all such avenues of interest. He loves his country with a passion, is happy and proud of his children (now adult) and of course his many grandchildren that keep increasing in number.
