According to the bio on his website: "Colin Galbraith was born in Paisley in 1973 and raised in Bridge of Weir in the west of Scotland. He has been writing fiction since 1999.
Galbraith always had a predilection for writing, and as a child could often be found penning short stories and poems. Over the years other things got in the way putting paid to those ambitions; after taking a degree in Business Information Technology at Paisley College of Technology, he began an office job in 1995 and forgot about writing altogether.
It wasn’t until 1999 that he picked up the pen once more after being given a copy of Paul Auster's biography, Hand to Mouth, after a creative fire was sparked reminding him of his desire to write. Galbraith enrolled on a creative writing course at the Open College of the Arts that same year, and two years later embarked on his own literary adventure.
After living in Leith for 15 years, Colin is now happily settled in South Queensferry with his soulmate and their two rabbits. When he’s not writing or at his day job, he enjoys eating out, wine, whisky, the theatre, fly/sea fishing and eating canolis. He is a joint owner of St Mirren Football Club, a proven rabbit tamer and an outstanding fake faller."
