Hello I’m a writer with an interest in travel and a particular interest in regions of the ex Soviet Union. I travel extensively and have lived for extended periods in Georgia, Estonia, the Ukraine and Russia.

I’m also a lover of old VW Campervans….and have driven a 1971 Type 2 across the Russian Federation from Tallinn to Vladivostok, a journey recounted in my book ‘One Steppe Beyond.’

My second book ‘The Way a River Went’ was published in August 2015 by Summersdale.
