Product description

About the Author

People say you should write your biography in the third person... “Robert did this, Robert did that, Robert starved in a seedy garret etc.”, but that would imply that I had someone who was writing for me, or that I’m suffering from some sort of split personality. I agree that all writers have to be a bit strange to lock themselves away for long periods of time, but one of the great things about writing a travel diary is that it involves getting out there, seeing new things and meeting people. Yes, there is all the hard work of writing it up and researching, but again one has to talk to people to fill in some of the blanks. I used to work for a large financial organisation, where ‘talking’ tended to be something that always involved work, or the “How are you today?” from our overseas colleagues, who were not doctors, and therefore really not qualified to have any concern for the state of my health. “Frustrated” was possibly my frequent answer; frustrated because I had all these stories buzzing around in my head and never enough time to write them down. After the financial crisis and the lack of interest in the people that actually do the work – we are ‘human resources’, not ‘intellectual capital’, and this sums up the attitude of so many leaders these days – I made a big decision, and resigned to be a full time writer, on a meagre (very early) pension. Starvation always helps to focus the mind I find - have you ever seen a fat full-time struggling artist? I would cut off my ear but I’ve no one to send it to, so that would be a waste. Using Createspace and Kindle I’ve just about managed to catch up with the backlog of stories that have been making me fidget since I first discovered word processors. North Cyprus is a light-hearted diary of my adventures around this magical country, roughly about the same size as Cornwall in the UK, and features most of the attractions you should visit if you manage to go there. There are also many observations and recommendations that you will find helpful, including quite a few that the normal travel books may not tell you. After requests, there is now a pocket version of North Cyprus, which cuts through all the waffle and tells you the facts and history only - and it really does fit in a pocket, handbag, rucksack or biscuit tin! My other travel book is 'Sicily, One Man in a Bus', along the same lines as North Cyprus, but I also enjoy writing fiction and currently have 9 other novels available.
