I'm a former globetrotter, still living life on the edge. Travelling days started in the 60's with an overland journey to India in a beaten-up camper-van. One of the last passenger ships plying between Southampton and Australia took me to a new life down under in the 70's. My first novel, Pursuit to Paradise, set in Thailand, was published in 2010 when writing as Mark Damaroyd. A novella, inspired by visits to Polynesia, Dicing with Diamonds, followed. After several turbulent years in South East Asia, a memoir, The Great Lottery Pay-off, was completed in 2014.
