Biography

Born in 1944, Stockwin soon developed a love for the sea. Having an uncle, Tom Clay, who was a seaman in square-rigged ships and had sailed around Cape Horn in the "Cutty Sark", the sea was in his blood.cite web | title=Stockwin's official biography | last=Stockwin | first=Julian | work=julianstockwin.com | url=http://www.julianstockwin.com/Biography.htm | date= | accessdate=2007-07-06 ]

After grammar school, his father sent him to sea-training school at "Indefatigable" at age 14. He joined the Royal Navy at 15 and transferred to the Royal Australian Navy when his family emigrated.

Stockwin attended the University of Tasmania to read Far Eastern studies and psychology. He did post-graduate work in cross-cultural psychology. He got involved in the manufacture and design of computers and software development. Returning to the navy and the Royal Navy Reserve, Stockwin was honoured with an MBE and retired as Lt Commander.cite web | title=Stockwin's official biography | last=Stockwin | first=Julian | work=julianstockwin.com | url=http://www.julianstockwin.com/Biography.htm | date= | accessdate=2007-07-06 ]

He returned to the United Kingdom in 1990 and started to write in 1996. Naturally the subject was the sea.
