Born in Zambia and raised in the English Midlands by Yorkshire parents, I moved to London to study and soon after to Bangkok to live. I've been in Thailand with my family since 1998, and as well as my home it's a city that, for good and bad, constantly surprises and inspires me and my writings. Indeed, my stories generally fall into two broad settings and times: The UK in the 80s and 90s; Thailand in the 21st century.
