Jason Smart was born in 1971 in Middlesbrough, Northern England. After a brief stint as a civil engineer, he became a driving instructor and then a primary school teacher. He now lives in the Middle East with his wife.
A major traveller, Jason has been to over 100 countries, spanning six continents, including some less-travelled nations such as Paraguay, Bangladesh, Rwanda and the Comoros. His first travel book, The Red Quest, described his mission to visit every country of the former Soviet Union, plus the six Warsaw Pact nations.
Jason Smart's first published article was contained within a book entitled, From The Grand Canyon to the Great Wall, published by Slenk Dee LCC in 2012. He has also had articles printed in travel magazines and web-based travel sites. In June 2013, his first paperback was published by Destinworld Publishing. Entitled, Take Your Wings and Fly, it details his progression through the UK Private Pilot's Licence.
