Short biography
Norman Sharam (41-45) had two great problems at Streete Court School, which were sports and Greek, the latter under Mr Peebles. He enjoyed acting in The Tempest and generally playing the fool. Norman went on to the City of London School where he went up the Classical side, then on to Oxford to read Law. He joined Unilever in their advertising agency, Lintas, where he was a copywriter. After five years, he joined Hobson Bates Advertising, which is now Saatchi & Saatchi and became creative director and deputy chairman. During this period, he married and had two sons. Sixteen years later he set up his own advertising agency in London but after six years sold to become a novelist, which for many years had been his ambition. Norman has had thirteen novels published, three under his own name and ten under the pen-name Neville Steed. This has enabled him to live happily in the beautiful county of Devon with his second wife who is also a novelist. They have two sons of their own and he dabbles in oil painting, a talent that he says he perhaps owes to Mrs Hoare's art lessons!
