Sobre mimBorn in UK, I've spent most of my adult life living and working in Africa (Sudan, South Sudan, Kenya, Uganda and South Africa) in various sectors - education, church, justice and peace, human rights, reconciliation, nonviolence, humanitarian aid and development. I'm passionate about railways and I was a steam locomotive driver and fireman when I lived in South Africa. I'm also a volunteer on steam locomotives in Kenya, and I've just begun building an Africa-themed model railway in a forty foot shipping container at our new home at the top of the escarpment overlooking Africa's Great Rift Valley. I'm married and we live in Kenya where I claim to be semi-retired, but I still spend some time working in South Sudan.

In 2020 I changed my username from "johnthefireman" to "John5918". Over the years a few people had assumed I was a firefighter. In fact I don't belong to that noble profession and the term refers to a steam locomotive fireman ("tallow pot" in US railroad jargon), stoking fires rather than extinguishing them. My new username is of course related to steam locomotives - 5918 is the number of a 250-ton East African Railways Beyer-Garratt named "Mount Gelai". This behemoth survived into preservation and I have been privileged to help maintain and operate her.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaMy non-fiction collection probably falls into three main categories: (1) railways, related to my hobby; (2) and (3) spirituality and Sudan/Africa, related to my work. My taste in fiction is eclectic. For many years my books were divided between two continents, so the LT online catalogue was very useful for me.
