Patrick G. Cox

Patrick Gray Cox is a writer who combines his love of Historical Fiction with Science Fiction writing; a mix of CS Forester and Isaac Asimov. He was born in Cape Town in 1946 and has worked in all areas of fire safety, initially as a fireman - fighting bush fires in South Africa - and later as a fire and explosives expert, consultant to large companies, teacher and Government Adviser, not just in the UK and South Africa but around the World.

He has been published many times over in trade journals and continues to write in a freelance capacity for the Fire and Rescue Journal. He has had a long fascination with the sea and ships, as well as the world of science fiction and space travel.
