Robert Vallier comes from one of the world's most distinguished musical families. He spent much of his life in music management, covering international touring, recording and theatre production. He created the 'Into Space!' series of lectures and books (which he published) for his close friend the late Sir Patrick Moore. He raised his 3 children as a single parent.
Vallier holds a private pilot's licence. His favourite airspace is that above California. He was responsible for sending over 5½ tons of books to needy schools in South Africa as catalogued working libraries. They continue today to enhance the lives of over 12,000 children annually. He shares his love of flying by taking handicapped and sick children and their parents up into the air in fun charity flights, bringing some much-needed respite to the families.
Spider 2-3 is his first novel.
