About mePrincipal of a Project Management company in Malaysia. Originally from Wakefield in West Yorkshire have been living in Johor Bahru, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur since 1994. Married to Hani with three children: Yasmyne, Kyran and Belle. Love reading and listening to my extensive CD collection usually at the same time.

About my librarySome would call it eclectic I would say it was a real hotch-potch of stuff: "serious" fiction, thrillers (classic yarn merchants such as Ambler, MacLean, Innes and Bagley), westerns, series detectives (especially the scandanavian crowd), history, biography and current affairs. With the exception of Tolkein not too keen on fantasy nor romance literature although of course not averse to the odd sex scene well placed!
