TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF
Maurice Perkins, also known as Moz, Polly and Mo (nicknames, depending on where he is known from) was born in 1957, a time when communities were still recovering from the impact of the Second World War. His parents are from simple backgrounds and ploughed a lot of love into him and his two brothers. Mum in particular encouraged all three of them to be creative. Maurice has drawn cartoons and can tell stories. It is why he has been able to become an author.
