About Graham Kingston

OS Wayfarer will chart my journey from international development assistance specialist (project management, monitoring and evaluation, and tender writing) to travel, feature and business writer.

My tender management and writing was informed by over 25 years as a development assistance consultant and by an intimate knowledge of the tendering process. I really enjoyed this tendering work - in essence it was putting together a story, albeit a non-fictional story. The deadlines, research, planning, interviewing, writing and presentation for each tender were all consuming and satisfying, yet exhausting at the end.

I do not wish to retire but I do want to "transition to retirement" and travel a lot more for pleasure. So why not write about some of the travels and also write about professional aspects of my development assistance work? From what I can see this self-publishing caper is a lot like tender preparation.

So I intend to write, publish and market articles (as eBooks) about project monitoring, tendering and travel. I want to learn everything about this exciting process.

Oh, and I am a sucker for technology - I do enjoy my Kindle, DSLR camera, notebook, smartphone and digital voice recorder!

I welcome your feedback as I learn to write, publish and market these eBooks.
