I am putting together a non-fiction book about the time my father spent as an air force pilot in the Mozambican colonial war. The document here is a draft of the foreword and first chapter of that project.

My other current non-fiction project is a website about Portuguese food. It gives the inside scoop on authentic Portuguese food as cooked by real Portuguese people.

Many, though not all, of my stories are set in Portugal and they often have a historical element to them.

I am fascinated by the depth of feeling and drama behind what are seemingly ordinary lives and I like to call my short stories “little epics”.





I have worked as a financial reporter for two renowned news agencies, but am also interested in writing on environmental and cultural topics and particularly those with a Portuguese element to them.
