 Lloyd Gretton was born to New Zealand parents in Tarawa Gilbert Islands, Micronesia on 31 October 1953.
Since 2001 he has lived and taught English in many countries including Outer Mongolia and Iraq.

His writing has been praised by – among others – a Professor of English and a Customs Official. His fiction has been short-listed for book publication — but declined because of political correctness.

His articles have been published in national journals. He is famous for not being famous.

Lloyd's reviews of all his Sargon Press writings can be read on Facebook.
