Glastonbury, Somerset UK

Author since aged 9. First novel The Bull got fair marks at school, noting author in need of improvement.

Began my professional career as a photojournalist, working for top titles in Fleet Street. Among them the London Times, Daily Express and a very short, boring stint with the Sun. Exposed to the propaganda and half truths demanded from photo/journalists in the ‘70s and 80s, my soul was worth more than the tarnished shekels of corporate cronyism. Went on to become one of the industry’s foremost photographers I enjoyed getting to know the world, its peoples and a far wider vision of life on earth on others’ behalf and their expense. I have appeared on TV and radio including BBC, France Inter and online radio. Invited to creative and literary conferences across the globe. In 2013 published ground breaking, first ever, in nearly 1000 years, translation of 11th century Sufi founder/mystic saint Hoja Ahmed Yassawi’s Diwani Hikmet.
Currently writing 7 book opus The Freedom Cycle
