I first began writing while living in Thailand in the late 1990's. Working for the social critic Sulak Sivaraksa on his periodical review of political activism in that country, Seeds of Peace. After the publication of 'How the City Farang Came to Love the Forest and Other stories' in 2002, I decided that I would write fictional stories about South East Asia. I now live and work in France, and am working on a story based there.
