LEO WALMSLEY was born in Shipley, West Yorkshire, in 1892, and was brought up in Robin Hood's Bay on the North Yorkshire coast — the 'Bramblewick' of several of his novels. After serving with distinction in the Royal Flying Corps in the Great War, where he was awarded the Military Cross, he determined to become a writer, beginning with boys' adventure stories.
He lived for a while in London before returning to Robin Hood's Bay in the late 1920s, then settled in Fowey, Cornwall and wrote Three Fevers (1932), the first of his 'Bramblewick' novels, followed by Phantom Lobster, Foreigners, and Sally Lunn.
In addition to over twenty books, he wrote 200 or so short stories and articles prior to his death in 1966.
