Born in London, but grew up in Cyprus, Germany, Wales and Scotland as an army brat, I was diagnosed with the travel and writing bugs very early in life.
Writing, reading and traveling are pretty much my main passions in life, but I also love outdoor sports too from Rugby and Hiking to Tennis and Boxing.
I'm writing another few books right now, one is about a young man in a dead end job and life who discovers that he has a terminal illness so decides to withdraw all of his savings from the bank and starts doing all the things that he's always wanted to do, but was restricted by the rules and regulations that society feeds into us from birth.
The other book is about my recent four month awesome back packing adventure through Eastern Europe last year, from Estonia to Sarajevo. I'm also looking forward to more traveling and writing adventures in the near future. I also try and treat each day like it were my last as you miss one hundred percent of the shots you don't take in life.

It's Nineteen ninety one and eleven year old Paul and his family have just moved to the climatic sunshine paradise island of Cyprus.
On Paul's first day at school he becomes completely spellbound by the pretty tomboy Sarah. Though not only because of her cute and athletic good looks. But also because of her rough and tough, jagged edged ways and her no nonsense approach to handling school bully Michael.
This incident triggers off a series of exciting and dramatic events that brings the homely, well rounded Paul and the troubled young Sarah's worlds colliding together. The two then begin an unusual and exciting yet somewhat tragic friendship, which will stay with them for the rest of their lives, as they both battle to confront their inner most fears and demons.
From the mystery of Sarah's Mother's disappearance to the trials and tribulations of growing up on the move with army parents. Sarah's domestic abuse issues living in a broken home with her alcoholic father to dealing with Paul's school bullying from the borderline psychotic Michael.
There are Summertime adventures to be had, gorgeous Cypriot beaches and Bondoo valley wastelands to explore. To haunted houses, dark hidden caves and first teen romances. All the while dealing with that delicate yet rough transition into becoming a teenager.
But how long can these summertime adventures last when children are forced to grow up so fast in an ever changing world, especially when unforeseen tragedies are just around the corner... Sarah Smiles is an adventurous, romantic tale for all adults, and young adults alike to enjoy.

 'A tragic tale of  a doomed romance like no other.'
Jason is a tormented soul and small town, womanizing  gangster. Fed up with his unfulfilled life he double crosses his only friend and does a runner with a suitcase full of drug money, disappearing into the heart of the gorgeous Scottish highlands to lay low in a secluded cottage before starting a fresh.
On his second day of hiding Jason discovers the mysterious body of a young and hauntingly beautiful woman lying unconscious at the bottom of a nearby hill. The woman though has no memory of who she is or how she even ended up there. So Jason carries the beauty back to his cottage and tenderly nurses her back to health. As the days pass, Jason gradually gains the woman's trust and friendship by confiding to her his own past sins and infidelities. Deep and personal confessions he has never told anyone before, especially a woman. Could our hero finally be falling in love for the first time in his selfish life?
Eventually Jason coaxes and pushes the woman into unraveling her own eerily forgotten past and tormenting mad nightmare visions of terror... But doing so without the hindsight of the chilling, terrifying and sickening acts of horror which are about to be unleashed.
'Strong language and graphic scenes of violence in parts.'

 A young man awakens from a long hibernation sleep on-board an eerie and crew-less space shuttle with no memory of who he is or how he ended up on board the 'lost in space' vessel.
When a young woman awakens from hibernation shortly after him and curiously has no previous memories about her past either, the man is forced to solve the mystery of the shuttle, who they both really are and what became of the other crew members who haunt him frequently with ghostly and chilling visions.
The man must also come to terms with his own lonely fate, his possible limited existence and a dangerous physical urge towards his fellow amnesiac female companion.

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger
