Gary Rostock


I grew up in Salford, close to Manchester, England. I never wanted the factory life on offer there and looked to music as my salvation from Trafford Park. To some degree my prayers were answered as in my 20s I was a professional musician. However, the life of a musician is a precarious one and after some years the bohemian life began to wear thin so I became an English teacher.
I now live in the Czech Republic and to shorten the cold winters here I began to write children`s stories and also adult fiction and plays.
I also supply vocals to Real Transported Man, an electronic band, so the music bug is still in me you see.
