Gerry Skoyles


I'm an English comedy/action adventure novelist and screenwriter. It all started sitting on the sand outside a beaten-up camper-van in the middle of the Registan Desert in Afghanistan, where I wrote my first travel article. The next dispatch, penned in a Mumbai slum, winged its way from India back home to the publisher’s UK offices. Eventually I arrived home in England and wrote a couple of crime novels, a few short stories and a comedy script for BBC television before sailing off to Australia for a few years.

In 2010 a novel, written under a pen name and set in Thailand, was published in the USA with a second edition published in Thailand in 2011. A comedy/action adventure feature length screenplay, set in the west Pacific Ocean, is complete and ready to roll, along with another comedy script, set in a group of timeless Polynesian islands.

An Ebook novella, 'Dicing With Diamonds', has recently been published. Later in 2014 a memoir, The Great Lottery Pay-off, will be available.
