Author Biography - Walk A Narrow Line

This author biography is one that has been in the making for 70 years. The author has been a music teacher for more than forty years, whilst also working as a professional musician. He has performed solo and with many different bands as well as sharing a stage with quite a few well-known artists. He would tell you that the gift of song and the ability to make music (even though he says he is still learning) for his own pleasure and for the enjoyment of others is a treasure more rewarding than words can portray.

 

After a troubled childhood which led from being abandoned by birth parents, mistreated by a step mother, placed in care, and sexually abused while in care; to sleeping rough and being given a prison sentence as a young adult, the author has managed to lift himself up and finally shed the shadows of his past.

 

His life so far has been far from ordinary, involving many trials and tribulations; triumphs and adventures, some of which he shares with the reader in this book. Rod has raised two families and passed on his musical knowledge to countless other young and not so young people.
