"Stray Bullet" Author Bio; Simon Duringer: Educated at Mostyn House School in Cheshire; Simon became involved in both shooting and writing from an early age. At the age of 10 he gained his Second Class shooting certificate. By 13 he had qualified as a Preparatory Schools Rifle Association Marksman and also at that age won his first writing competition.

In his late twenties Simon joined the Royal Air Force where he won the Best Shot Award during his Basic Training and wrote a satirical article on the antics of trainees going through basic training. He continued to write and contributed to a number of RAF Station magazines and was published in RAF News.

Simon exited the RAF in 2004 and has worked and managed operational control rooms ever since, yet the passion to keep on writing has finally led to him concluding ‘Stray Bullet’, which had been started and often was left gathering dust since 2003.

Simon lives in Chorley, Lancashire with his partner Liz and her three children.
