Biography

Alan Buckingham is a freelance writer. He has over twenty years' experience in illustrated publishing, both as an editor and as an author, and has worked on countless information books, interactive CD-ROMs, and websites. In recent years he has written chiefly about gardening and photography, his two main interests. Allotment Month by Month is illustrated with many of his own pictures. Alan is a long-time plot-holder on the prestigious Royal Paddocks Allotments near Hampton Court Palace, south-west London. Every summer he proves himself incapable of heeding his own advice and consequently grows far more fruit and vegetables than he and his family could ever hope to eat. Should he ever be given the opportunity to have his time again, he would happily swap a career in publishing for one as a head gardener.
