I left school at 15, with no formal qualifications, joined merchant Navy, then the UK police retiring as Detective Sergeant after 30 years. In that time I dealt with the real horrors of life, murders, rapes, child murders and abuse to name a few.
I now live in Spain in the Region of Alicante, in the area of Rojales, where I enjoy the sun and the quieter side of life. Which gives me time to write. I am published under my pen name Roger Rapel. .
