Christopher Kenworthy was born in Liverpool, Lancashire in 1937 and was brought up on a hill farm in the Lake District which gave him a lifelong preference for silent mountains and limpid lakes. He briefly studies law at King's College, London University, where he found myself in charge of the college newspaper, King's News. This resulted in him leaving university to enter the world of national newspapers, and he spent a quarter of a century on the Daily Express, the London Evening Standard, TV Times, The Sun, and the Sunday Mirror. In those years, he was a reporter, a gossip columnist, a political leader writer, a television correspondent, a cinema critic, and a publishing correspondent and a book reviewer.
In 1985 he left the newspaper world to become a freelance television correspondent, mainly for magazines and has contributed to the Daily Telegraph, Radio Times, What's On TV, etc. As a result of my article in the Daily Telegraph on the life and work of one Police Wildlife Liaison Officer that he was approached to research for the BBC television drama series Badger, and wrote the companion book to the series.
Amongst his other works are naval and nautical fiction series although the books are relatively short at between 100 and 200 pages.
