John Quentin is an author. He writes compelling fiction that is topical, informed and thought provoking.
Born, brought up and educated in Manchester in the north-west of England, his immediate heritage is Manx, Scottish and English.
After school, he graduated in Chemistry before spending the next 27 years as a military engineer. Highlights of his service in the Royal Engineers include witnessing the end of the cold war in Germany; a year running a multinational civil-military Mine Action programme in Bosnia; spending four years testing and evaluating future military engineering equipment and working in NATO’s Strategic Operations HQ managing operational infrastructure investment. Best of all was nearly three decades of meeting, working with, and learning from some of the most outstandingly selfless, decent people anyone could hope to meet anywhere.
After leaving the Army, he was an Explosives Engineer, then he qualified to be a science teacher. His latest venture is turning his hand to ‘Bibliogenics’ – his term for the art and science, the process and the journey taken to create a book from a brainwave. Bibliogenics is also the name of his publishing imprint.
He lives with his family near Bath.
