Raymond Carroll is the author of 'Only Raising Dust On The Road' – a serialised novel set in Thailand.
A Scotsman, born in East Kilbride, Glasgow in 1970, Raymond is married to Sunan – a Thai national, and has two Thai/Scottish children: a girl (17), and a boy (13). He currently resides in Scotland but previously lived and worked in Thailand for two years between 2002 and 2004.
In his younger years, Raymond also lived and worked in Ireland, Canada, California, Egypt, London (UK), the Channel Islands, and Taiwan. Back then he had no trade or specialized skills that helped him to travel and live and work abroad, but he was energetic and enthusiastic and was willing to give anything a try. As a result, Raymond has worked in a vast array of markets and industries throughout the world, ranging from sales jobs to construction to online entrepreneur and writing projects. Over the years, Raymond's priorities have changed since having children, and he doesn’t travel as much as he would like to, but travel and writing are still two of his greatest passions.
Raymond's time in Thailand changed his life forever and his novel is loosely based on how that change came about.
'Only Raising Dust On The Road' has been serialised into 4 novella length books.
Part 1 - Buckfast, Lager & Fags is available to purchase on Kindle & Paperback at Amazon.
Part 2 - Same-same But Different is also available to purchase on Kindle & Paperback at Amazon.

Raymond has also written a collection of previously published short stories (essays) compiled from his Thailand Travel Blog (http://thai-nomad.com) called 'Thailand Travel Tales'
