David Baird's books have been published in English, German and Spanish. This British-born author has worked on newspapers and magazines around the world, from Sydney and Ottawa to Hong Kong and London. For some years he has been based in Spain. His work has appeared in many publications, including The Economist, The Times of London, the International Herald Tribune, the Daily Telegraph, the Daily Express, the Boston Globe, The Scotsman and Maclean’s Magazine. He has twice been awarded Spain’s national travel-writing prize for foreign writers and journalists.
His book Between Two Fires, also published by Maroma Press, has won high praise from such respected historians as Paul Preston and Lorca biographer Ian Gibson. It is the first-ever account in English of a guerrilla conflict which raged in Spain in the 1940s and was unreported at the time due to the rigid censorship of the Franco regime.
Typhoon Season (a thriller set in Hong Kong) and Don't Miss The Fiesta! (a thriller-chiller set in Spain) are David Baird's first works of fiction. His other books include:
Between Two Fires – Guerrilla war in the Spanish sierras
Sunny Side Up –The 21st century hits a Spanish village
Inside Andalusia – A travel adventure in southern Spain
East of Malaga – Essential guide to the Axarquía and Costa Tropical
