Andrew Thomas, who was educated at schools in south Pembrokeshire and at Bangor University (BA) and Cardiff University (MA), taught English at grammar and comprehensive schools in England and Wales for 35 years. He has published book reviews and critical features for The New Welsh Review and Poetry Wales, poems for About Larkin and articles on education for English in Wales. For some ten years he has been editor of Staple, a publication of the School of English at Bangor University, where he also sat on the Alumni Advisory Board and served as a member of the University Court. His interest in that special corner of Wales – south Pembrokeshire – is such that he regularly contributes to A Different Angle. He has also been published in Pembrokeshire Life.
