“Hello, and thank you for looking at my website! After a career in security, I am now an author, writer, publisher and poet. I started writing back in 2003 and am now a genre best-selling author of six non-fiction true crime books, one biography, two self-help guides and various other titles, as well as two travel and one poetry anthology about The Kingdom of Bahrain where I lived for four years, and where I was also commissioned to produce and publish a quality book for one of the biggest Arab merchant families in the Gulf regions.
