About Me...

I have been writing and publishing for over twelve years, after leaving security operations and training; an industry I was in for almost twenty years previously.

Hunstanton - 2013

I am a genre best-selling author of six non-fiction true crime books, one biography, two self-help guides, as well as two travel and one poetry anthology about Bahrain -  where I lived for four years, and where I was also commissioned to produce and publish A Tribute to Abdulla Ali Kanoo a quality book for one of the biggest Arab merchant families in the Gulf region.


I have also compiled and published a poetry and short prose book series featuring almost 220 writers and poets around the world.

Bahrain, 2012

On top of this I have written and published a number of Kindle ebooks on a diverse range of topics and subjects, founded and published Tough Talk, an acclaimed online magazine interviewing martial artists, boxers, combat specialists worldwide, founded The Circuit magazine for the British Bodyguard Association, founded On The Doors, the UK's No1 magazine for Door Supervisors, and originally published the International Directory of Security & Close Protection.


I have also written a large number of articles for magazines and newspapers worldwide including Gulf Insider, Sur La Terre, Time Out, Norfolk magazine, Absolute Lifestyle, Signature, Exotic Car, Rural Life, T Qatar (NY Times style magazine) and many more.
