My books can be divided into those I wrote as a sole author, and the guides in which I collaborated.

[Click on the covers for more information about writing the book.]

Sole Author Travelogues

Brazil: Life, Blood, Soul (2003)- My original title: Five Hundred Years of Fascination was deemed too ‘academic’.

This edition is now out of print.

 

 

The second edition is only available on Kindle.

Rainbow DiaryRainbow Diary: A Journey in the New South Africa (2005): I considered the working title The Boers, the Blacks and the Backpackers a bit offensive.

This edition is now out of print.

 

The second edition is only available on Kindle.

Singapore Swing: (2007). This kept its original title (I fought off suggestions such as Singapore Sling).

This edition is now out of print.

 

 

The second edition is only available on Kindle.

All the above were published by Summersdale. I received an advance and royalties for those, unlike from the guides below that involved a commission fee upfront.

Sole Author Travel Guides

Not so straightforward is my first travel guide, out July 2008, published by Globetrotter Guides.

It was a commissioned  Wildlife Guide to Brazil. This was the book I enjoyed researching and writing the most.
