I´ve spent most of my adult life working as a lawyer in business. These days I´m mostly retired as a stroke of good fortune a couple of years back enabled me to divert my full time energies to my interest in writing, given that my two boys are grown up. I live half in the north of England and half in Madrid. I was lucky enough to work in many countries and I´m sure that the contrast of language and culture is a good way to keep the mind fresh. I also have an abiding interest in endurance sports where I started as a bicycle racer, moving on to marathon running and ironman triathlons.
