In 2004 the author compiled a “book” intended for family members, entitled “I Remember It Well”, comprised of letters home, travel essays and extracts from his diaries, covering a twenty month period , following the completion of his university studies, from 1965-1967, during which time he hitchhiked, youth-hostelled and worked his way throughout most of Western Europe. In concluding that "book" he noted that over the intervening years, he continued to travel abroad and indicated that he was planning a five week trip to Australia and New Zealand in November, 2004. He did take that trip, preceded the year before by a trip to Morocco and Egypt. Since those trips he began the practise of writing periodic travelogues of his annual travels, which he e-mailed home to members of his family and a few friends, reflecting in a light-hearted and at times amusing manner, his impressions of the people, the places and the experiences encountered in the various places that he visited. By 2006 he had fallen into the pleasant habit of usually taking one major trip abroad every year and he began seriously and regularly to write travelogues of his day-to-day experiences and impressions of the various places he visited. He also took many photographs during those travels and showed them to family and friends upon his return home. During the past decade he has also traveled extensively in the United States of America, although he has not written travelogues about those shorter trips. The travel adventures, described in this series of mini e-books, have been taken either independently or as part of a group tour and have taken the author to South America, New Zealand, the Far East, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The Number One Best-Selling Autobiography of Someone You've Never Heard of
May 15th, 2014 by thaidiamondbooks

NibbleBit.com

An ordinary man on an extraordinary journey. When he was only nine years old, Steve Foreman spent almost one year confined to an intensive care ward suffering with life-threatening acute renal failure. Even at that young age he was dreaming of going to Africa to work with endangered wildlife. In 1992, more than thirty years later, that dream came true. In the interim, Steve followed careers as a soldier, prison officer, private investigator and a security operative with a few odd jobs thrown in along the way. In his sixty-odd years on this planet he has taken part in many adventurous activities, including motorcycling, caving, rock climbing, foreign expeditions, mountain climbing, SCUBA diving, parachuting, anti-poaching, gun running, drug smuggling and undercover surveillance. As a published freelance writer and magazine editor, his work has appeared in many magazines and journals. Over the past twenty years, Steve has had many adventures and misadventures in the wild places of Africa, including working as a safari guide & mountain leader and as a security operative. Steve has led an incredibly diverse life, full of polar extremes that have ranged from the heights of serving his Queen and Country, philanthropic acts and saving endangered wildlife—down to the depths of criminality. Woven through this ever-changing life is such a gamut of mistakes and mishaps, triumphs and tragedies, bizarre incidents, ridiculous situations and myriad sexual exploits—and so many pivotal moments—that it leaves one wondering how one could cram so much into a single life. The story is at turns humorous, tragic, ridiculous, exciting and sad; but above all it is honest.

He has traveled worldwide to some eighty countries, therefore has plenty of exotic locales on file to choose for his next one. Much of his world travel has been for big game hunting; this and his background as editor with Petersen’s Hunting, Guns & Ammo and Guns magazines, frequently brings firearms into play in his stories. He’s been at the muzzle-end of guns too; in Angola as prisoner of ugly mercenary Cubans armed with ugly AK-47s, but that’s another story.

An Extraordinary Life
May 12th, 2014 by thaidiamondbooks

NibbleBit.com

A betting man visiting Cardiff in Wales and meeting a baby Brian Twinney in 1936 would have given very long odds on him making it into his teens, let alone being 78 years old and living with his family in the north of Thailand. For this is a survival story, just as much as tales of shipwrecks or walks across Antarctica. Everything was against the young Brian making it through any sort of life. He came from a family that made dysfunctional much too feeble a word to describe it. His baby sister, Eral, was dead at seventeen months from pneumonia. As a child during the war he learned how to steal out of the docks in order to feed his siblings. As a young man he spent time in prison. Yet Brian Twinney even with his lack of education had a natural aptitude to work with both his hands and his brain. Born into different circumstances he could well have been a noted entrepreneur or leader of a giant corporation. In many ways this isn't only a survival story, but also a success story. I think you will find his story fascinating.

By the time you’ve finished, you’ll probably know some parts of Bangkok better than the locals.
