I am a journalist, author of six books (three of which are about Spain) and SEO specialist copy writer. I live permanently in Spain with my family and run Culture Spain (an authority site for ‘all things Spanish’) and a real estate agency for properties located around Gandia in Spain.
Of the six books that I have written, four have been factual. These have included ‘How to Buy Spanish Property and Move to Spain- Safely’and ‘The Laptop Entrepreneur’, which is all about how to use the Internet to make an income and turbo charge your business! My latest book is Both Barrels – a comedy that has been a joy to write after so much factual writing.
During my time in Spain, I have worked within the real estate industry, whilst also undertaking investigative journalism on a wide range of matters concerning Spain. This has included tackling subjects as diverse as: corruption, the economy, divorce and domestic violence, drugs, the Spanish property crash, immigration and even the Spanish culture of brothel use!
I have been a columnist for the A Place in the Sun magazine and I have featured as an expert on programmes by the BBC (Radio 4 and BBC 1), ITV and Channel 4 (A Place in the Sun) – with regard to matters concerning Spain. This has complemented the time I spent co-presenting a TV programme for a Spanish TV channel and ‘fixing’ that I have undertaken for a major TV production company.
