Excerpt from Exclusive Pedigree
I have been unable to discover how my parents came to meet each other. They certainly had quite different family backgrounds. Mother and her two siblings were brought up by their widowed mother, Annie Eleanor Coslett (later Harwood), in a small miner’s cottage in the industrial Welsh village of Basaleg. The view from grandma’s front window was dominated by a huge slag heap which was an accumulation of waste excavated, over the years, from the village coal mine.

About Robert Fear
Born in Leicester, UK in 1955, Robert’s family moved to Surrey when he was 11. He was educated at Reigate Grammar School. After this he worked at a bank in London for several years before getting the travel bug. Fred, a nickname he got at school, stuck throughout his travels and has remained with him to this day. His travels took him to Ibiza for the summer of 1977, hitch-hiking around Europe in 1978 and the USA and Canada in 1979. During this time he also settled and worked in Germany. Fred’s Diary 1981 was written during the 158 days he spent travelling around Asia.
These days Robert is happily settled in Eastbourne, East Sussex where he lives with his wife and three cats. He works as a software consultant and has been able to combine work with some travel during the past fifteen years, having visited countries as far apart as Australia, Singapore, Ghana and Suriname.
