My Story

I’m 46, have lived in 9 countries (Europe, Middle-East, and Africa), and travelled to over 50 more. I have 4 kids and built 2 houses from the foundations up... but now going through a messy divorce. I have been mostly self-employed during my adult life working as a freelance consultant in micro and digital finance.  I have run 2 marathons, was in the British Territorial Army and enjoy rugby and cricket. I’ve talked to friends, strangers, murderers, addicts, and therapists. I’m happy to share my social, cultural, religious, racial, and sexual opinions through my words. My life is one of ups and downs, but never stagnating… and this is why I write, design plots and build characters, why I am an author, poet and call myself the Paperback Writer.

REVIEWS

160614 Crying for Afronia Cover Final Sm

“This is an excellent political yarn, from someone who knows the country very well and has a deep inside knowledge of the way that Africa works. I am looking forward to the next book Escape from Afronia.”

(David ,UK)

This is a most ingenious book very cleerly written. All appening with a day, minute by minute in the confines of a coffee house. There are several story lines, and I am most impressed, right up to the end. (Caroline, UK)

A friend recommended this book as I write poetry. I have read some poetry anthologies before but never a book telling a whole story in poems, let alone one which also included pictures and prose. I think it is very creative and like the arc of the character from hopefully to making a mess of his life to redemption, this much as all our lives are to one degree or another.  The author captured the challenge of life really well and I would be happy to see what happens next. (Harry, Canada)
