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 ; Chronology of South-East Asian History 1400-1996 ; and Thailand Timeline 1500-2015 ); travel (Pattaya ‘Patpong on Steroids’ ); greyhound (The Ultimate Accolade ) and horse racing (Bernborough, Australia’s Greatest Racehorse ).
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.
