Stephen F. Thomas was born in 1984, at home, in the now defunct town of Fairmead, California. The family home was situated in the shadow of the Chowchilla Municipal Airport flightpath (his mother, Marilyn, correctly identified a Boeing 737 as it flew over at the precise moment of his birth). The family relocated to the UK in 1987, initially setting up home in Crackpot, North Yorkshire. His father, Pedro “Georgie” Thomas, was a factory worker and avid bicycle wheel collector. The move to the UK was prompted by the mistaken belief that a Raleigh bicycle factory was due to open within walking distance of the village. On realising their mistake the family drove south in search of a new life, living, as they travelled, in their cramped Volkswagen Beetle Mini-Camper (for unknown reasons the journey took 18 days). Georgie at last found employment with a ball cock manufacturer in Oxfordshire, and it was in that county that Stephen would spend his formative years. At the turn of the millennium, aged 16, Stephen was expelled from school. He decided to become a writer. Following in his father’s footsteps he has an impressive collection of washing machine facias. Stephen now divides his time between Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.
