David Foulds
Syllabus Designer,
Series Editor and Reteller

David was born in London. Soon afterwards his family moved to Marlow, a small town beside the River Thames. Marlow has literary connections: it is where Mary Shelley finished writing her scary story about Dr Frankenstein and his monster (Level 5: Frankenstein), and where Montmorency, the dog in Three Men in a Boat (Level 5) had a spectacular fight with the town cat. Leaving school at 16, David worked as a bank clerk for a while, did two years of military service (compulsory in those days) and then, after training, became a secondary school teacher (History and English). In 1967 he moved to Hong Kong. He came for two years but liked the place so much that he stayed for another thirty. He has now returned to England, and lives in one of the smaller villages on the Norfolk coast, where he spends his leisure time, he says, 'enjoying the delights of nature, especially when the north wind is blowing!'
