About Me

I started working in the security industry on the doors many, many years ago. From the doors I went into nightclub management for a while, running a number of high-profile venues across the UK. From the clubs I entered the world of close protection and close protection training, and have trained bodyguards in Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, The Balkans as well as in the UK. I also formed the Worldwide Federation of Bodyguards back in the '90s, which went onto be one of the biggest private security associations of its kind in the world. Around the year 2000 I sold my little security company, had a year off, moved to Moscow where I wrote my first book.


I have since become a genre best-selling author of six non-fiction true crime books, one biography, two self-help guides and a number other titles on a variety of themes and topics, as well compiling as three anthologies about The Kingdom of Bahrain where I lived for four years, and where I was also commissioned to produce and publish a quality book titled: A Tribute to Abdulla Ali Kanoo, for the Kanoo family; one of the biggest Arab merchant families in the Gulf region. I also founded, edited and published the Bahrain Arts Magazine, the country's leading online arts platform, produced and published the Discover Bahrain delegates magazine, and for a short while Bahrain country editor for luxury lifestyle magazine Sur La Terre.


On top of this, I compile and publish the acclaimed Collections of Poetry and Prose book series, so far featuring over 1400 pieces of work from 275 writers and poets from 49 countries around the world, all writing on particular themes and topics. I have produced and published books and magazines for other people too, and written articles for magazines and newspapers worldwide including; Gulf Insider, Sur La Terre, Time Out, Norfolk magazine, Absolute Lifestyle, Signature magazine, Exotic Car magazine and many more.

I am currently based in France, but am moving back to Bahrain shortly.
