I am a journalist, author of six books (three of which are about Spain), specialist copy writer and ghost writer (books and articles). 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.’ I have also written the text to several books by one of the world’s top documentary photographers.

Information about Spain, Spanish property and Spanish culture
Interviews, investigative articles, copy writing, proofreading, corporate article PR, documentary voice-overs
During my time in Spain, I have undertaken 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, the Spanish culture of brothel use and even a profile of a high-class call-girl!
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 have spent co-presenting a TV programme for a Spanish TV channel, voice-over work for documentaries and ‘fixing’ that I have undertaken for a major TV production company.
