I’d like to welcome Gary Bonn to the Thursday Throng chair today. Gary lives in Scotland with his family and an alarming number of accident-prone chickens. His writing is informed by his long experience working with children with social, behavioural or mental health difficulties and equally by his fascination with hunter-gatherer societies. He throws a mean spear.
Huw Thomas is an unusual character for an author, not only is he a prolific writer but he exercises too – I love the fact that he rode 10,000 miles on a tandem with his wife to raise money for Shelterbox; well done Huw, that’s an amazing achievement. In addition to this interview he’s doing a lot of work raising more money for Shelterbox with a competition linked to the book; you can find out more on his blog here: http://hdthomas.wordpress.com/other-projects/competition-unlock-the-vault/
