As an author, I'm always looking for new forms for my writing. Over the years I've published fiction long and short, essays, poems and light verse and enjoyed working with every medium. If there's one thing that I hope these books have in common, it's humour. I hope you have as good a time reading my books as I had when I wrote them.

Return To The Go-Go
This is the second collection of Khun Pobaan's amusing and insightful outpourings about life in Pattaya, essays first published in the blog on this very site. For those with a genuine interest in all things Pattayan, Return to the Go-Go is the only guide you really need. Khun Pobaan’s precise and sometimes painful observations of life are the only true public record of the unique form of civilisation to be found on the Thai eastern seaboard. Blurb>>
The Day of the Tiger
This is my latest collection of short stories. As with the previous books, most of these eleven tales are set in Thailand. You can read about a domestic cleaner who despairs of her feckless husband, a junior bank teller who tries to convince her boss there's been a murder, a lady in a hurry who won't stop to help an old man who's lost his shorts, a butcher and a restaurateur discussing farming techniques and a lady-boy searching for love. You'll also find the diary of one of the last two people on Earth, a market-stall tableau and one man's vision of peaceful eternity. And more. It all adds up to a pretty varied package.

Sweet Song of the Siren
With Thailand as the exotic backdrop for many of these eleven tales, we meet a wide range of intriguing characters: men and women, foreigners and Thais, humans and... well, others. There's a murderer who sees himself in stone, an old woman dying of dementia, a troupe of argumentative monkeys, a man who finds a stash of love letters to his wife, some guy who falls in love with a body-part, and Kress, Thailand's most urbane private investigator, who has to cope with two lost boys. Humour and tragedy, plots with a twist, and always something to make you think. Blurb>> Aussi en français>> Reviews>>
If You Can't Stand The Fun,
Stay Out Of The Go-Go
There's an arch over the road into Pattaya which welcomes you to 'The Extreme City'. Really. Some visitors find this a bit of an under-statement. Everything in Pattaya is taken to the limit - the spiciness of the food, the poor quality of the driving, the mysteries of Thai logic and, of course, the fun. This lively book of essays looks at life in Thailand's second city (arguably) from the point of view of an innocent foreigner lost in wonderment - Kuhn Pobaan, whose name we can perhaps agree to translate as 'Mr Househusband'.
