About the Author
Robert Collinson spent his early years in his home town of Edinburgh and had many different jobs before finally, at the age of 22, he moved north to Aberdeenshire to pursue a career in the oil industry.
After many years of working on and offshore, for various operators and service companies alike, he began consulting on an international basis, travelling extensively to work and fulfil his contractual requirements. This allowed him to gain a broader understanding of drilling operations and increase his knowledge and experience.
Forty years later, he retired and decided to recall the memories of his adventures at home and abroad, and began to share some of the stories that had formed part of his career.
Even as a young child Robert Collinson would conjure up stories with his imagination, sharing them with anyone who would listen. He has developed his storytelling and writing technique quite a bit since then, but the thrill of language and the creation of stories that he first discovered as a child, has never left him.
He continues to write and this website provides all the details of his works to date.
