Leslie Roberts

Leslie Roberts was born and educated in Liverpool, England. During World War II, he served in Iceland and the Far East with the RAF, being engaged mainly in code and cipher work. In the late forties, he was a scriptwriter and broadcaster for Radio Malaya before returning to England and training as a teacher. He taught in England and Singapore until 1966 when he moved to Australia with his family.
He was principal of several country schools in South Australia, but found some time for writing, and was president of the South Australian branch of the Dickens Fellowship for many years.
His verse has appeared in several poetry publications in England, Australia and the US and he is also a writer of short stories and two novels.
Apart from poetry, his interests are in art and music. Married, with an extensive family, he is also an enthusiastic but untalented amateur painter and a keen but brown-fingered gardener.
