As a journalist I have covered stories all over the world, from Yellowknife in Canada, to the African continent, the tiny island of Mog Mog in the Pacific and the Antarctic circle. There have been vast oceans and jungles in between. My assignments, one of which has resulted in being awarded a prestigious UK Press award for foreign reporting, have included wars all over the world, among them the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor. Photos I have taken have been used in magazines and exhibitions. My 30 or so books encompass fiction, true crime and general non fiction.
