I lived for many years in Moscow and Central Asia travelling extensively throughout Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan - often to places with restricted access to foreigners. During my time there, I advised a number of real-life oligarchs how best to take advantage of the opportunities that became available as regulation crumbled and government became increasingly corrupt.
I write thrillers based in former Soviet countries. Not surprisingly, while my novels are fiction, many of the anecdotes and scenes are inspired by actual events while I lived there.
I now live with my wife - and a cat called Lenin and a bulldog puppy called Boris - in a hilltop village in the South of France.
