If you are seriously thinking about living in Thailand you need to read James King’s THAILAND DIARIES starting with 15WEEKS.
Witty, informative, often deliciously ‘tongue-in-cheek’ and full of typically British humour, is a must read for travellers, would be ex-pats and those who just enjoy humorous light reading.
Between Jun and Sep 2008 James King stayed for fifteen weeks on the tropical island of Phuket where he formed his first impressions of Thailand. He learned a little of what it would be like to live in Thailand permanently and he diarised his activities, observations and some unusual incidents which took place during his 15 week sojourn.
On arrival he had no intention of settling in Thailand permanently but when he gleaned valuable information about the Country and its people he changed his mind.
The Author recognises that many aspects of 15 WEEKS apply equally to women as they do to men even though he writes from a male point of view.
James writes more extensively about Thailand in Volumes 2 and 3.
We hope you’ll be kind enough to post a review.
James King is an Englishman who emigrated to South Africa in 1995. His work took him all over the Country, visiting Cities, townships and rural areas, gaining valuable insight into the culture and lives of the people after apartheid was dismantled. He is well travelled, has mixed with politicians, sports stars, creatives, music impresarios, business tycoons, murderers, fraudsters, and even hired assassins. Each of them has provided rare material that adds vivid colour to his writing. In 2008 James moved to Thailand, in semi-retirement where he has built two houses, renovated another, created a tropical garden from waste land, built a successful blog, written books and become an accomplished amateur photographer. James’ niche is in the literary and suspense drama genre although he started by writing non-fiction travel books. His writing emphasises story with a literary bent and character-driven suspense with twists, turns, and feeling. His first novel is due to be published in 2018. His poetry drifts from the romantic to a fear for the survival of our world and the darkness of death. Inspired by music, film, and literature, Shakespeare, Dickens, Hesse, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan have all had a profound influence on his writing at some point.
