    Dodger was born in Canada, started school in the UK, attended elementary school in Canada, secondary school in the UK, and high school in Canada, before returning to the UK to serve an apprenticeship. It’s no wonder he’s confused! After moving country eight times in thirty years, Dodger prides himself on his diversity, and this is reflected in his stories with a growing collection from both sides of the Atlantic.
