Fred Cooper was born in 1950 in Seaham, a small harbour town in County Durham on the North East coast of England.
He spent much of his teenage years sitting around coffee bars with his school friends, walking around the harbour and watching the pilot cutter bringing in cargo boats laden with timber and building materials and re-loading with coal bound for counties on the East coast of England. He believes that anyone born in Seaham has a natural affinity with the sea, the harbour and the harbour area - in fact - the majority of Seaham born folk have ancestors who worked on the numerous sailing ships visiting the port in the Victorian era. His formative years in Seaham provided many of the experiences and background framework for much of his writing.
