Paul Bondsfield grew up in a small village in Hampshire, England but has travelled widely and lived in several countries including Denmark, New Zealand, Jersey and South Africa. But southern Africa is his spiritual home, the region of the world where his mother’s family came from and through which he travelled for several months in the early 1990’s.
He now lives with his family in Farnham, Surrey (UK) works in the travel industry and plays drums in a rock band.
Acacia is his first novel and was borne out of a real painting left him by his Grandma, herself born and raised in Rhodesia. This painting was as described in Acacia, and too yielded up its own secrets some years after it came into Paul’s possession.
He’s currently working on his second book, ‘The Oak’
