about J.H.Mann

J.H.Mann is an award-winning journalist and writer living in the South West of England. He says, 'Many of my stories are set in the wonderful county of Cornwall where truth can sometimes be stranger than fiction. I have swum and surfed there much of my life. It has always been a special place for me with its legends, soaring cliffs, rugged moors and wild seas. The landscape has a raw, mystical magic. My father and mother's recollections of rescues and tragedies on the North coast are often the inspiration for my stories. My father became one of the county's early lifeguards after his predecessor was killed by a strike of lightning while standing in waist-deep water. '
