The Author
Born in 1938, Henry Disney is the author or co-author, of more than 600 scientific publications on insects and author of nine 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.
