I started writing professionally in 2005.  Two years later Joan Wales’ biography, Point me to the skies, was published.  Since then I have written two more biographies, In Japan the Crickets Cry and Lives from a Black Tin Box.  I wrote my first film script in 1988 for Bedel (Ransom), filmed in Turkey and since dubbed into a dozen or more languages.  More recently, The Jesus Accounts, a 30 minute documentary on the reliability of the NT gospels, was released and broadcast in 2010 and has been dubbed into more than eighteen languages for audiences in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. I have completed another documentary, Jesus, Son of God?, and I am working on a third, Jesus: Dead and Buried?.

Prior to taking up writing as a career, I lived with my wife and daughters in Fujian Province, China, for ten years, where I lectured in Civil Engineering at a Chinese University.
