I am a 54 year old Irishman cum English teacher (must be a joke in there somewhere!) as well as a freelance journalist currently teaching in Bahrain. In the day I teach and write at night (when time permits.)
Although in the Middle East now, I my base is Bangkok as I have a Thai wife and speak the language. I have been writing all my life, and in terms of fiction, I write mostly short stories although, for my MA Writing, I wrote a screenplay called Seven Days in Bangkok which has not yet been produced. (I also have an MA in Educational Leadership & Management.)
I wrote a book about Thailand too called Watching the Thais in it's 2nd edition and also on Amazon and in Kindle and other formats. I have written a great many freelance articles for well-known media outlets, too. I had a regular column in The Bangkok Post writing education and business based articles, and I have also written for Al Jazeera (Qatar), The English Language Gazette (UK), The Guardian (UK), the South China Morning Post (Hong Kong) and jobs.ac.uk (UK).
Currently, when time allows, I am working on a book of short stories set in and about Thailand. It will hopefully be published later this year or early next.
