Chris was awarded an MA from the University of Oxford, where he read mathematics. After more than 30 years teaching in North Somerset schools he realised there were easier jobs and he became an adviser and consultant and also started writing mathematics textbooks. In connection with this he has worked with teachers and educators in various countries, including Qatar, Indonesia, China and Mongolia. He is still churning out textbooks and now has over 30 titles in print that are being inflicted on school children both in the UK and around the world. His ambition is to write a novel, but you cannot have everything.
