Writing has always been my passion, but I only achieved my dream when I retired from the commercial world, and left the United Kingdom to live in the seaside resort of Bang Saen, Chonburi, Thailand. I write every day when at home. When I'm not writing, I'm traveling. Researching locations as background for my books. Through my work I went to many countries and have seen the hardship and poverty that exists in parts of the world. I have witnessed many of the actions I write about and use these experiences to add reality to the story. The novels are fiction, but based on the realities of life. I self-publish as e-books. The genre, mystery/thriller/ romance. My books can be purchased on line at Amazon, Kindle books, Smashwords, Ingramspark, Payhip, Googleplay and at many other reputable book stores.
