Born in Coventry, once the heart of Britain's motor industry, Brian comes from a family with a proud heritage in the automotive and aviation fields. He trained as a mechanical engineer, and worked for a time at his father's garage. Brian became heavily involved in the classic car scene at 19, and says he turned to writing by accident. He now writes full-time and, since 1990, when his first book was released, he has had over 80 titles published. Brian and his wife, Miho, have two children, and currently live in Chiba, close to Tokyo. His main interests outside of cars include old cameras and bicycles, and the family's love of Thoroughbred horses.
