Author Biography - L.Colin Wilson
L COLIN WILSON was born in 1958 in Aberdeen, of parents and grandparents who themselves were from the Aberdeen area. Having spent his early childhood there, and then some two years in Cumbernauld, he was raised in Peterculter on Lower Deeside. He was educated at the local primary school and later at Cults Academy, after which he graduated from RGIT in Electronic Engineering.
As well as North East Scotland, he has also lived and worked in London and Glasgow. By profession he is a computer software developer. Nowadays Colin lives in Aberdeen's Midstocket area, with his wife Fiona - a native of Cairnbulg - and her golden retrievers Honey and Cara. When not working at his job, or promoting Scots, his main interests are other languages, travel, and his music collection.
