As a schoolkid I used to bum my way to Barcelona. I spent the
holidays tramping around the back roads of Spain. Since then I
have visited over a hundred countries.
I have lived mainly in Portugal since the turn of the century, and
been involved in businesses here, tangled with the legal system,
bought and sold houses, and ended up living part time in an
apartment at the end of a dirt track overlooking an estuary with a
landing stage at the bottom of the garden. My immediate neighbours
are Portuguese, Dutch, German and English.
Iíve done so many things to stay alive, from running a property
company in Central London, to sweeping roads and driving a
mini-cab. Iíve been a goat-herd in the mountains of Morocco; Iíve
been a lawyer, a university lecturer, a property developer,
writer, musician, gambler and bum. I even used to perform in a pop
band and run a record company and recording studio.
Now I spend most of my time writing novels, travel books and
poetry, and writing and recording music.
