Oliver Wynne Hughes was born in Pwllheli and lived his boyhood years in Cricieth, Caernarfon and Ffestiniog. Educated in Liverpool and at London University, he also took an MSc in Strategic Studies at Aberystwyth. He has been a schoolmaster, was Bursar at Coleg Harlech and for 24 years was a regular army officer, serving in Hong Kong, Malta, Gibraltar, Cyprus and West Germany as well as in the United Kingdom. He retired in 1983 and is now an Executive Recruiter. He has three adult children and lives with his wife Kim in North Wales. Every Day was Summer is by and large the tale of three young sisters who grew up in the small Welsh town of Harlech in the years before the First World War. Their stories, some sad, some amusing, but all of them endearing, light up the pages of this book. The interweaving of their lives with those of their young friends and their relationships with English visitors, many of them members of the aristocracy, others from the world of entertainment, sport, literature and the arts who visited Harlech each summer, make a tapestry that is a social history of a small Welsh community during the early years of the 20th century.
