Brian Burland was born in Bermuda in 1931. His father owned a construction company. In 1944, he went to England to attend school and then to Canada to go to university. He dropped out and then went to Ireland, before returning to Bermuda when his father died. He worked for his father’s construction company, before selling his share to become a writer. His first novel was for children but he went on to write a series of novels for adults, which were well received but did not sell particularly well.
