Hugh Galt was born in West Scotland and educated in Edinburgh. He went to London to train as a journalist and worked for a short time in Fleet Street before returning to Edinburgh where he worked as a journalist for a number of years.
Intending to go and live in Mexico he somehow ended up in Ireland! He worked in the West of Ireland for several years - as a disc jockey, then in fishing. Hugh and a friend salvaged a sunken trawler which they rebuilt completely.
In 1979 he moved to Dublin and set up computer production systems for the main national newspapers. Currently he works as senior sub-editor of the Irish Independent, one of Ireland's largest newspapers.
Hugh's interest are cycling, computers, amateur radio, music, and writing. His first book, BIKE HUNT received much acclaim and was a winner of the IRISH BOOK AWARDS Young People's Books medal. It was translated into many languages.
