Author: David Guthrie

David was born in 1937 and grew up in Bridlington on the east coast of Yorkshire until nineteen.  He gained an Honours degree in Chemistry from the University of Manchester in 1959, from where he joined the UK Atomic Energy Authority at their Dounreay site on the north coast of Scotland.

This was the interesting time when the country’s only Fast Nuclear Reactor was being commissioned and began generating electricity for the National Grid.  He met Rita there and they were married two years later.

They moved to the south of England and for the next three decades David worked on a variety of projects which included developing products employing tritium, the radioactive isotope of hydrogen, to provide tiny amounts of power; on product development for a major confectionery company (it was still chemistry!); and leading a team developing new types of liquid crystal display in the early days of that product.

When into their early fifties Rita and David decided to convert a hobby into a business and rebuilt a barn behind their former farmhouse into a photographic studio, then spent nearly twenty happy years running a professional photography business.  This was brought to an end in April 2008 when Rita suffered her major stroke.  This gave David his last major changes of career - as described in this book - as carer and author.

They have three children and eight grandchildren.
