Rob Atkinson

Sabotaging since 1 Jan 2013

Rob Atkinson was born in West Yorkshire in 1961, and has lived there all his life. He is married, with one daughter who is currently studying in York for a career in Primary Education. Having worked for many years in the voluntary sector as a Welfare Rights adviser and freelance trainer, he has been occupied as a carer for the past few years, working also as an actor, proof-reader and copy editor. Rob is currently writing a book about the bad and worse times of following his first and most enduring love, Leeds United AFC. When he is not treading the boards in various theatres around Yorkshire, he is to be found somewhere near his computer station at home - ostensibly working, but more likely reading the work of authors he admires (George MacDonald Fraser, Leslie Thomas et al), and dreaming of publication. Rob's other interests include local and national history, astronomy and cricket..
