I became involved in creativity research by accident. As a young lecturer in an engineering department, I was given the task of helping to develop a new, first-year course that, among other things, focused on engineering creativity and innovation. My first reaction was to seek some input from a real creativity researcher, and I was fortunate that my father, Professor Arthur Cropley, happened to fit that category. I was vaguely aware that he had been active in this field since before I was born, so I felt that he would be in a good position to steer me in the right direction. To cut a long story short, and with 15 years of hindsight, it proved to be a fruitful collaboration.
