I've been a journalist, hippy, teacher, road sweeper, mountain guide, university lecturer and writer. I have lived and worked in the UK, Singapore, Chile, The Netherlands and Colombia. After almost two decades at the University of Durham, UK, I said to my Colombian wife I would return to her native country if I could work there and play cricket. I now lecture at the Universidad de los Andes and the Centro de Estudios Superiores de Administracion (CESA)and play cricket one day a month at the Bogota Sports Club.
I have four sons who live in the UK when they are not working ot travelling abroad
I have published two texts on economics (with Routledge), have been writing short stories since the 1980s and novels since 2012. See below for existing novels - there is one more in process. Check my blog for details of all my publications and the invitation to contribute to exercises and short stories with Bogota Writers.
