My name is Daniel I went to Glasgow University between 1992 and 1995, where I studied British History I lived in a basement flat in Cherry Tree Road with my friends Colin and Trevor We had a lot of good times I probably spent too much time playing sport and not enough time working on my assignments My favourite sport was basketball I still play it now, although not as often as I would like to After graduating I got a job working at Glasgow Central Library The money wasn’t bad, but the work was not to my taste, so I left after a few months
Later on I did teacher training in Norwich and became a Norfolk Adult Education teacher I got an amazing job training teenagers with learning difficulties Both this job and my degree came in really useful when I started writing fiction for young adults My nineteen books are all set in different periods of British history They involve a bunch of teenagers from the present day searching for answers to historical questions, like why the Romans left Britain My son Anthony is at university at the moment He’s studying Modern Languages at Exeter
