Biographical Sketch

Nigel Gray is an Irish-born Australian writer. He was born April 9, 1941 in Aughafatten, Northern Ireland, the son of a Protestant farm laborer and a Catholic kitchen maid. Gray says that his childhood memories are painful. He was not a good student, and in his early life drifted through many jobs. He says he became a writer by accident, when he was on a peace mission to South East Asia during the war there. He turned to writing as a way to inform others of the conditions there. Much of his early writings deal with political and racial unrest, but his style eventually became lighter, and even whimsical.
