Norman Smith

Born Edinburgh 25 August 1955

‘I trained as an engineer but always had more of an interest in the Arts. I have had a lifetime interest in all things Japanese.

I lived within an art community for ten years in St. Ives, Cornwall and ran a small gallery showing my wife Helen McLuckie’s paintings.

I have made a fresh start in Cirencester to concentrate on my writing. I appreciate the Somewhere Else Writers Group for their great talent and encouragement of my writing.’
