James Cassaday


Since leaving school in 1949, James Cassaday has followed a varied career embracing the Merchant Navy, the Royal Air Force (Marine Craft Section), and Fire Services in Liverpool and Guernsey. Along the way he was awarded the Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society Award for saving life; and the Queen’s Fire Service Medal for distinguished service.

James now lives in retirement with his wife, Mary, on the south coast of Guernsey, where an earlier love of sailing has largely given way to gardening; but the sea is always in view, and it reflects in his style of writing. He also writes knowingly, and vividly, when it comes to describing an outbreak of fire.
