Born in Grangetown, near Middlesbrough, in 1954, Colin Farrington was brought up within sight of blast-furnaces and flare-stacks, but now lives in rural North Yorkshire with Sarah, his partner of 25 years. Off and on he attended Eston Grammar School. Introduced to foreign parts by the Army, he subsequently travelled extensively and was able to put his love of learning languages to good use.
