I have been writing books and articles for many years but for most of that time it was something I did on the side. I’ve had a varied and fascinating career full of variety and change.

I started, when I was much younger, running a wholefood restaurant in Devon. Since then I have run companies in property, construction, health care and consultancy and I’ve worked as a chief executive in the voluntary sector. For the last fifteen years or so I have been coaching people to help them make the most of their careers.

I discovered quite early on that I need variety as well as challenges. I went back to university, part time, and studied first for an MA and then a PhD, on an obscure Aramaic translation of the Bible. I started writing articles on academic topics and social issues, contributing occasionally to books and, when I got a bit more time, writing my own.

I’ve got two great, grown up kids, one grandchild (so far!) a wonderful wife and live close to the centre of London.
