Born in New Zealand of English parentage, Lionel David Charles Hartley worked as a office and theatre manager and commercial artist for many years and gained qualifications in Business Administration, Business Law, Electronics, Economics and Accountancy and an honorary diploma in Dramatic Art while still quite young. In the 1970s, he graduated as a Registered Community Health Nurse with subsequent postgraduate qualifications in Psychiatric Nursing, Psychopaedic Nursing, Nursing Administration and Nursing Nutrition. He later graduated from the St Andrews Clinic under the late Dr Platts with a Certificate in Sex Therapy and Family Life Counselling. In 1980, he graduated from a Melbourne Theological Seminary with a Diploma of Religion. In addition to a number of other qualifications, Lionel later received a PhD (Sociology) from the Pelman Institute in 1989. He is perhaps best known as the author, co-author, editor, and/or illustrator of over fifty books and the author of scores of periodical articles, pamphlets and multimedia publications. He spent almost three decades as a family life counsellor, firstly for the New Zealand Department of Health, but mostly in private practice with an unashamed Christian bias. Although retired from counselling, Lionel is still very involved in campanology, writing, manuscript translating (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Hebrew, Latin, and Portuguese), proofreading, commercial art and public speaking and singing engagements. His hobby in his younger years was the building of reproduction barrel organs and the transposition of music into organ rolls. Lionel is married to Rosemary (nee Wells) and they have three grown children.
