Well-travelled, well-worn, possibly handicapped by excessive university education and analytical baggage, now achieving a long-term ambition to write, having finally come to believe that I can tell stories of interest.
I have worked in many parts of the world, including the Middle East, Russia, Scandinavia and Central Asia. Burdened with degrees in Physics, Marine Science and Business, I worked for over twenty years in the computing industry as an IT professional. A sailor since the age of eleven, sailing my own boat in the Atlantic, Mediterranean and as far as Brazil - much writing is done afloat. With a waste-no-words style which makes complex themes and concepts easy for the layman to understand, I am well equipped to write on themes blending travel, advanced technology, science and marine life, not losing sight of the desire to inform my readers and entertain them with action and sharply defined characters.
Authors I enjoy include Le Carre', Craig Thomas, Lee Child, James Lee Burke, Alistair Maclean, Hammond Innes.
