I was born on the island of Guernsey in the Channel Islands. However, I now spend much of my time in Brittany, France.
I have always enjoyed reading books about travel and especially about people making a new life in another country. This spurned me on to start a novel about my exploits in Portugal, where I spent three year growing tomatoes. Being virtually the only Englishman in the village I soon learnt to speak Portuguese and got involved in the local lifestyle.
My nick-name was ‘Rei Dos Tomates’ which means Tomato King, which I though would be a good title for a book. The book is still a work in progress, as it will be a fully fledged novel, but has been on the back-burner for a number of years. I also have a tomato growing blog full of tips and advice on tomato growing.
In the mean time I have spend much of my time in France, so this spurned me on to write a short novel about ex-pats moving to France. Luckily with the advent of Amazon Kindle , it was very easy to publish as an e-book. So I have taken the first few steps into getting a novel published. I have also just stated writing the sequel to Vantastic France.
