Born and raised in Kenya in the nineteen forties and fifties, where Guy’s parents farmed in the so called ‘White Highlands’. For a while, the family fortunes prospered but the advent of Kenya’s fight for independence in the nineteen fifties destroyed their unrealistic dream.

The family farm was lost when it was taken over by the British Government, as part of the 1963 independence settlement. Guy’s first novel ‘No Happy Valley’ was written against the backdrop of this momentous change in African history.
