Christopher Burn trained as an accountant and has lived in London, Paris and Malta. Over a twenty year period he successfully created an economic and cultural wilderness out of a secure and pleasant lifestyle, using only a bottle of Scotch. In 1988 he helped start Castle Craig Hospital, probably the UK’s largest addiction clinic, where he remains involved to this day. At various times he has been a banker, tax adviser, taxi driver, hotelier and psychotherapist.
When the going was tough, he found solace and hope in poetry; this has been a lifelong obsession. It gave him the inspiration to start anew. Writing Poetry Changes Lives is his response.
Christopher is married with three children and five grandchildren. He spends his time between London and the Scottish borders.
