Geoff is a freelance author and poet. Although serious about his prose Geoff writes poetry for fun, often to mark family occasions and to amuse his friends which could explain why he has not got many. He is an active member of the Llandudno Writers Group and an online member of Writing &amp; Publishing.

Geoff was born in London, but has spent almost all of his adult life, up until moving to Bulgaria, in rural North Wales.

In what he says feels like a previous life Geoff was a child care professional.He graduated in Sociology at Portsmouth and later qualified as a social worker at Liverpool. He spent forty years working mainly in child protection, firstly in a local authority, later moving to a well-known children's charity. In the later part of his social work career Geoff worked on projects aiming to improve child care provision across Europe including in Bulgaria.

Geoff is married to a beautiful German woman from a literary family - Marieluise's mother was a successful novelist - and hopes that with the publication of a number of books he may at last attain full family membership.

Geoff has two grown up daughters and four grandchildren. He enjoys life with his horses, growing vegetables and sitting outside on a warm evening drinking beer with his friends.

Geoff's successful travelogue, Bulgaria: Unfinished Business, was published in December 2015. It is now the go-to book for British people living in or contemplating a move to Bulgaria. Prior to that Geoff wrote a novel entitled, Second Time Lucky set in 2035. He has also written an historical novel based in seventeenth century Bulgaria, ruled over by the Turkish (Ottoman) Empire. The Icon of Arbanasi was published on 11th July 2016. His most recent work of fiction is Belene Island, an historical novel set in the early years of the Bulgarian Communist era. Belene Island was published in March 2018.

Finally, Geoff has written the book for which he has been gathering material for most of his life. His social work memoir, Seeking Utopia: A Lifetime in Social Work, was published on 12th January 2019.

Geoff's favourite authors are George Orwell, Alice Hoffman and Kurt Vonnegut.
