About

I am a freelance journalist, text and line editor, historian, and traveller with a love of greyhound and horse racing.

These diverse interests have led to the publication of 10 books since 1985, covering history (Brief History of the Thirty Years War and the English Civil War [1985]; Chronology of South-East Asian History 1400-1996 [1997]; and Thailand Timeline 1500-2015 [2016]); travel (Pattaya ‘Patpong on Steroids’ [2002]); greyhound (The Ultimate Accolade [1986]) and horse racing (Bernborough, Australia’s Greatest Racehorse [2006]).

I have written articles for publications such as Turf Monthly, The Australian Magazine, Adelaide Review, Daily Telegraph (Sydney), The Nation (Bangkok), Asia-Pacific Tropical Homes, Journal of Siam Society, Fah Thai (Bangkok Airways’ in-flight magazine) and many others.

Embracing the e-book revolution, I have published Bernborough, Australia’s Greatest Racehorse and Pattaya ‘Patpong on Steroids’ in this new format as well as Zoom Top, Australia’s Greatest Greyhound. Additionally, there are three shorter pamphlet-style publications produced as e-books: one on travel in southeast Asia, Tarts, Touts & Temples; one on history, Opium in Thailand; and one which is arguably an historical polemic, Why Preah Vihear temple should return to Thailand.

I have lived in Thailand since the end of 1999. I am married to a Thai lady and we have two children.
