The Keys to the Riad Just in case you were wondering where I got the inspiration for the novel I just finished…here you go.


Great feeling to be done. Lots of work still to be done on it, but the first writing is the hardest part. Just getting it down on the page.

Winner of Nano

This book has been quite a journey. Writing a novel in a month is no easy task to begin with but when you add that I was traveling the first 12 days, working from hotel rooms and then back at home, we have a 15 month old daughter and I’m running my business, editing Vagobond, and keeping more than 50 websites going while getting the visa paperwork together for my wife’s immigration visa – I feel very proud to have accomplished this again in 2012.

I felt like completing this book was a major step towards reconnecting with the part of myself that is and always has been a writer. It was an important personal journey. The fact that I managed to finish a few days early. It’s just icing on the cake. Man, this feels good and best of all – I think the book has some real potential too.

I’m a winner! Hooray!
