About the Author
GARETH OWEN: Having graduated from Bangor University with a degree in Applied Physics and Electronics he, in his own words, put it to good use by ... running away to join the film industry! Setting up office at Pinewood Studios he ran his own production company and in 1999 branched out into writing film-industry related articles for trade magazines. This lead him to writing his first book, 'The Pinewood Story', the history of the famous studios through the eyes of the people who created it. Further books followed - Albert J Luxford: The Gimmick Man; Alan Hume - A Life Through The Lens; Roger Moore - His Films And Career ... and that latter book lead to the opportunity of working with The Great Man himself, for 16 years, as his PA, right hand man, on-stage interviewer and co-author. Having persuaded him to put pen to paper on his first volume of autobiography, Gareth served as his ghostwriter on 'My Word Is My Bond' plus a further three volumes: 'Bond On Bond', 'Last Man Standing' and 'A Bientot'. He continued to write other books ranging from 'The Shepperton Story' to ghostwriting 'From Pinewood to Hollywood' for film producer Paul Hitchcock; 'Memoirs Of A Film Publicist' for Jerry Pam; 'Stars And Wars' for art director Alan Tomkins; and his 19th, and most recent book launched in 2020 entitled, 'Raising An Eyebrow - My Life with Sir Roger Moore'.
