Sid James is one of Cliff Goodwin's four best-selling biographies. He is also the author of To Be A Lady: The Story of Catherine Cookson, When the Wind Changed: The Life and Death of Tony Hancock and Evil Spirits: The Life of Oliver Reed. Cliff Goodwin was born in London in 1950. He was educated in Slough, Berkshire, and joined the town's weekly newspaper as a trainee journalist in 1968. Since then he has worked in newspapers, magazines, public relations and for the local radio. His coverage of the 1988 Lockerbie air crash earned him a regional press award. In 1993, after 25 years of journalism, he decided to concentrate on full-time writing. He lives in the north-east of England.
