Kim Wheeler was born in London on the 29th July 1954 and was immediately taken into care. Kim was sent to boarding school aged eleven and left aged fifteen with a love of outdoor pursuits and music. Kim worked in several dead end jobs but found a contentment driving forty ton trucks he was also a professional decorator and owned his own decorating business. Kim then worked as a DBG (driver bodyguard) until injury forced early retirement.
Kim is also a self taught photographer, a writer of over one hundred published poems and prose, a dog trainer and dog rescuer and currently owns two large breed dogs. He has also learnt to play the guitar, but sadly the sound he makes resembles a horse eating shreddies. Kim has also written several books which include a private collection of poems called Plateaus Mountains and Detritus (sadly no longer available), Rescue Dog Rescues Man which is free to download by visiting his web site www.kimwheeler.co.uk. Kim also wrote a self help book called Battle Scarred Journey where Kim sets out to help others by explaining just a few of his own experiences in his varied life. Kim is now working on the next exciting book in the series of six Jonny Plumb Adventures.
