Ted Bocking

A blitz survivor, an inconspicuous grammar school education and a bemused service in army Intelligence makes for an odd background for an author. Remnants of Ted Bocking's great grandfather’s scribbled notes formed the basis of the Barnaby Madden books - The Hickory Stick and The Ashen Rung. Married with children and grandchildren, Ted lives in Cambridgeshire with his wife and his Border Collies. Ted is much involved as a Trustee for local charities.
