Biography

Christopher Vere Awdry was born on 2 July 1940 to Wilbert and Margaret Awdry. When he was two, his bout of measles, which left him bed-ridden, inspired his father to tell him bedtime stories that eventually made up The Three Railway Engines, and a wooden toy, also made for him by his father, eventually became Thomas. When he grew up, he became a tax inspector for the English Government, but he resigned from his job when he decided to continue his father's work writing The Railway Series, writing books for it from 1983 to 2011. He is currently vice president of the Talyllyn Railway.[1]
