I’m a writer and expat/repat, so much of my published work – but certainly not all – tends to be on related issues.

What follows is a list with links to most of my work on a variety of online and print media: radio interviews, non-fiction expat articles, expat book interviews and book reviews, my guest posts at other expat blogs and some very cool awards & recognition.
