Reading like travelling opens the mind!
Some of Adam Yamey's recent books contain a number of semi-autobiographical travelogues. His travels have taken him to Africa, America, Europe, and to countries that no longer exist such as Yugoslavia.
*** THE VERY LATEST BOOK, now available on Kindle AND soon to be published in PAPERBACK is about the Albanian (Arbereshe = Arbëreshë) communities of Sicily. It is called "FROM ALBANIA TO SICILY". This new book is about the Albanians who fled the Ottoman invaders of their native land, and then settled in Sicily in the 15th century. ***
Adam has also published 2 novels. "Aliwal" was his first foray in to the world of creative writing. It interweaves historical facts with fiction to create a life of the first of Adam's blood relatives to travel out from Europe to what is now South Africa. "Rogue of Rouxville" is a fictionalised account of another of Adam's relatives who left Germany, settled in Southern Africa, and then fled to Illinois in 1880.
Adam was born in London in the early 1950s. Educated in London (Highgate School & University College London), he first gained a Ph.D. in physiology, and later became a dental surgeon.
