The Author
Born in 1938, Henry Disney is the author or co-author, of more than 550 scientific publications on insects and author of 8 previous collections of poems.  The latter reflect his varied experience, including active military service in Cyprus, medical entomology in Belize and Cameroon, running a field centre and nature reserve in Yorkshire and being a research fellow at Cambridge University, where he still works in his 'retirement'.  He was co-founder and co-editor of the first 31 titles of the acclaimed Naturalists' Handbooks series.  He has served on a planning committee, on WHO committees and church committees, as well as being a church warden.  More important than all the above, he is a father and grandfather, but his late wife died the year before they were due to celebrate their Golden Wedding.  She was the love of his life.
