Allan Gilmour was born in Nottingham, England, in 1967. In 1987 he sought new horizons and left England´s green and pleasant land for a life in the Black Forest of South Germany.
He possesses a German Masters degree in Hairdressing, is self-employed and is a lecturer in Hairdressing and Business Studies.
When not playing about with his keyboards, cataloguing old German philately or sifting through his collection of old vinyl recordings, he loves to jog through the rolling-hills of the Black Forest which creatively inspires him for future projects.
Allan Gilmour lives with his two furry friends, Mr Fred Midnight and Sir George Francis Winston, in the Black Forest of Germany
Nice place, shame about the human race is his first non-fiction work.
