Novelist. Expat. Writer for hire.


The Blog

I have been writing about my travels and home life since moving to the Middle East in 2009. This blog is a way for me to enjoy and remember the extraordinary things I have seen as an expat and late-arriving world traveler.  I hope armchair adventurers will enjoy browsing, and I hope anyone considering a move to the Middle East will use the many descriptions of home life as a resource for answering questions that most potential expats have. (Use the index at the bottom of the blog page to find the category you're looking for.)

I also throw in an occasional article or link to my writing elsewhere in the online world. I write about health and wellness among other things, and am a contributor to my local weekly paper.

If you are looking for a little more show and a little less tell, check out my travel photos over at Flickr. And if you have questions or want to be in touch about a writing project, I'd love to hear from you.
