Dr Graham Clingbine was born in Hammersmith (London) but grew up and spent his whole
childhood in Harrow (Middlesex). He later lived in Plaistow (East London) and then moved
briefly to the village of Eye (Suffolk). Since then he has resided for many years at addresses in
the Ilford area (Essex) in the UK.
Graham has BSc and MSc degrees from the University of London (Bedford College, Regents
Park) in the areas of Biological Science and Neurobiology. His award of PhD followed a research
programme on the memory mechanisms of the brain undertaken at North East London
Polytechnic (later re-named the University of East London). His work led to four papers being
accepted for publication in scientific journals.*
Graham spent a long career in education at schools and colleges** before retiring from City
& Islington College in North London from his post as Course Manager of the Medical Access
Course and also as Senior Lecturer in Human Anatomy & Physiology and Biochemistry.
Graham's expertise in teaching is in the area of Biological Science. He is a qualified teacher but
also worked for a short time in a pharmaceutical company looking for birth defects in the
new-born caused by potential new medications before they were licensed for public use. This
work in reproductive toxicology was undertaken at Life Science Research Ltd (in Essex and Suffolk).
During the time he was involved in teaching, Graham co-authored a number of paperback books related to model answers to Biology examination questions. His knowledge and experience gained from teaching Biology later motivated him to write his book about human sexuality. The intention was to produce an easy to read enlightening review which was informative, educative and entertaining.
Among his various personal interests, Graham has a keen interest in science fiction and extensive research knowledge in the subject area of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and related phenomena. These interests resulted in the production of his science fiction books Disclosure and Release From Stasis and the documentary-style review in UFO Sightings And Alien Abductions.
Graham has been married twice and has two daughters. His paternal experience of telling his small girls bedtime stories encouraged him to write his book of Bedtime and Daytime Stories for Children.
In addition to his teaching activities, Graham spent many years as a home-based network marketer. He was mentored by some of the UK's top entrepreneurs and worked in areas such as utilities, costume jewellery, health & nutrition, autoresponders and other computer software. His network marketing book The Network Marketing Bible is of great value not only to people starting up new home businesses but also to experienced entrepreneurs.
Graham has a number of hobbies and personal interests including badminton and cricket. He is a keen angler and not only enjoys fishing the rivers, lakes and seas of his home country (the UK) but has ventured further afield to countries across Europe ( southern and northern Ireland, France, Holland and Spain) and to the Gulf of Mexico off Key West in Florida in the USA to catch tuna, barracuda and dorado. He has also visited Nigeria, Tunisia, Rumania, Greece, Italy, San Marino and the Balearic Islands of Majorca and Menorca.
