Derek Partridge grew up in an English country home with several Siamese and other breeds of cats. He also had three cocker spaniels and, in his teens, he added guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, ferrets and rabbits.
Both he and his parents were surprised to learn that he was a gifted child, according to Margaret Branch, author of “Gifted Children.” Derek attended the Universities of Paris and Barcelona and later became an officer in the Royal Air Force, a City of London Special Constable, the CEO of several companies, such as Conservation Tools & Technology and the Cinema Translation Center in Rome, a consultant to Alfred Nobel’s Nitro Nobel and, Winchester UK. In Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) he was RTV’s chief news anchor and talk show host and was nicknamed RPC: Rhodesia’s Premier Celebrity. He also trained Rhodesian SWAT Teams. All this makes Derek an interesting and unusual author.
