Lunch and Speaker meeting Gordon Thomas ” A latecomer novelist”
28th July 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 2:15 pm
Gordon Thomas was brought up in Parkstone, Dorset, in the south of England.
He is proud of his late father, a postman. In 1969 Gordon gained a PhD in
nuclear physics and in 1972 became employed in the UK Home Office where he
and his team conducted some of the original work in fingerprint science.
After taking a range of administrative and scientific posts he retired in
2003. At 66 he is one of our oldest ‘debut’ novelists with the unique and
beautiful story of ‘The Harpist of Madrid’. He lives with his wife, Janet,
in Worcester Park in the London Borough of Sutton.
