My two hobby passions are football and travel.
Football was my first love, following Manchester City from afar and Exeter City locally. I count my first ever visit to Manchester to watch City at their former Maine Road ground as one of the greatest days of my life.
I first dipped my toe into independent travel waters in 1987 - a three week train adventure around Europe. Getting escorted out of the then Yugoslavia as a young travel virgin under armed guard set the tone and hooked me in for good!
I have now travelled in over sixty-five countries and am always planning that next trip.
I also have a passion for writing and have put this to good use, publishing my first travel book and starting my travel blog in 2014.
I also had a football related book commissioned in 2012 telling the story of my passion for Manchester City, which managed to sell pretty well and crack the top 50 football books for a few weeks in the Amazon chart.
I have now embarked on my first fiction book. Watch this space!
