Trevor Simpson was born in England. He joined the Royal Navy in 1947, aged just 16, enabling him to travel the world. Upon leaving the Navy, in 1956, he took numerous jobs, before finding himself working as Head Lifeguard in the town of Newquay in Cornwall. From there, he got himself aboard a lobster boat.
Diary of a Cornish Fisherman recounts the years he spent working as a seafisherman, first in partnership, later as skipper of his own boat. As the Diary also records, he made a decision to move to Ireland towards the end of the decade. In Ireland, he continued to ply his trade as a seafisherman. He still lives in Ireland and though he has since retired, he likes to take to the sea occasionally.
In addition to his volume of memoir, entitled Diary of a Cornish Fisherman, he also writes poetry, which has been published in various media.
