"Remember... a negative mind will never, ever give you a positive life!"

My Books

Following a career in security and leisure management, I am now an author of six non-fiction true crime books, one biography, two self-help guides, as well as two travel anthologies about The Kingdom of 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 also currently voluntarily manage Bahrain Arts Magazine, the Kingdom's leading online arts platform.

 

I have compiled and published the acclaimed Collections of Poetry and Prose book series, featuring almost 1300 pieces of work from 255 writers and poets from 49 countries around the world, and have written and published a number of Kindle ebooks on a diverse range of topics and subjects. I founded and published the original Tough Talk, an acclaimed online magazine interviewing martial artists, boxers, combat specialists etc worldwide (back online), founded The Circuit magazine for the British Bodyguard Association, and originally published the International Directory of Security & Close Protection.

 

And lastly I have 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.
