About Ian Scott-Parker

After training as a cartographic surveyor and then draughtsman, Ian worked in the haulage and manufacturing sectors before retraining to operate a short-run digital-color print studio.

Now retired, he lives as an Internet recluse with his wife Beth, whom he met through MyMac, and three unruly rescue dogs, Sammy, Tika, and Gracie.
