Seumas Gallacher was born in the cradle of the Govan shipyards in Glasgow in the so-called “bad old days” which were in reality the greatest of days, where everybody was a real character of note.
An early career as a trainee Scottish banker led to a spell in London, where his pretence to be a missionary converting the English locals fell on deaf ears.
Escape to the Far East in 1980 opened up access to cultures and societies on a global scale, eventually bringing the realization that the world is quite simply one large extended village.
The lifelong desire to write has resulted in “The Violin Man’s Legacy”, the first in a planned series.
Seumas says that finishing that novel was one of the best feelings he has ever experienced in a life full of rich emotions.
