Experience

  • I have just finished the first draft of my first ghost-writing project. Last year I wrote No Place to Call Home (Inside the Real Lives of Gypsies and Travellers) and also released two Kindle Singles - one a memoir about searching for my Iranian birth father, Blood and Water, and one a short story about the Rwandan genocide. I also co-wrote the afterword for a book about Irish Travellers, Journey into Darkness, just published in Germany, as well as writing numerous articles and carrying out research projects.
