I live in Suffolk (Kessingland) and Andalucía. Although a British subject I was brought up in Australia and New Zealand. I have worked in Southern Africa and Saudi Arabia as well as some light soldiering in the British Army serving in Germany. I write freelance for many international and domestic magazines including several English Speaking Spanish periodicals. I also take my own photographs. With a special interest in the Spanish Civil War, I have shed new light on the controversial Fallen Soldier photograph made by Robert Capa in 1936. I am a qualified photographer and have a diploma in freelance journalism. I have also studied archaeology with the University of Exeter and University College London. John MácDonald.

Ignoring the cries of parents, friends, and family to ignore my dream, I have given my life over to writing. Well, that's what I think you should believe, so that is what I stated. But the truth may be closer to: I love to write. I began creating stories long before I could actually write. (Thanks to the invention of the tape recorder, I can actually prove this. But don't make me. Oh, who am I kidding? I still think those "Wacky Stories" (name clearly inspired by that classic cartoon Wacky Races) are brilliant and will gladly share them with you at the merest hint that you are even remotely interested. Clearly, a conversion to either an animated or live-action 3-D Youtube sensation is looming.) Fiction and children's book writing are my greatest passions, but I have an annoying talent for editing to the great boon of many a relative and former classmate. I have a B.A. in Religion and Mythology. I also hold an MBA. It's in my left hand as I type this. Luckily, I am right handed. And that about sums me up.
