Born 1970 in Plymouth, Devon and eventually washed up on Spanish shores. I took root in Madrid after four years in London at teaching college. Soon after that, I ventured further south settling in Seville in the old gypsy district of Triana. Eleven years later and it was time to move north again and to the town of Girona, an hour and a half from Barcelona and nestled in a politer landscape.
A teacher by training, an MA in history, two published titles to date, a further 3 books in the editing phase and a novel in the making.
My interests primarily revolve around history and Spain, while my pipeline-novel will be a complete break but something I have coveted forever.
I am presently engaged in a historical title concerning the British Raj and then I will return to completing the editing of my cultural title on Europe's most colourful city: Seville.
That is all till now, hopefully there will be more to come, readership willing.

Jousting with Windmills - A Journey into the Heart of Spain
by Mark Colenutt
Without a word of Spanish to his name, Mark was perfectly prepared to leave home behind and begin life in Spain teaching English. Under his arm was a copy of Don Quixote, which acted as his indirect guide to the nation's psyche. His ambition was to learn the language, travel the country, unlock Cervantes' novel and add to his outlook on life. What he hadn't counted on was precisely what happened.
