In addition to my on-line work, which has included the creation and content provision for a number of web sites, my efforts have appeared in the following publications:
1980 – photographs published in Khaleej Times (daily English language newspaper of the UAE)
1981 – photographs published in Mina Jebel Ali booklet (publicity and record of the project)
1990-2000 – Three articles in Hawk Talk (the tri-annual members’ magazine of the Hawk Conservancy Trust)
2004 – Harris Hawk photograph published in the English language brochure of the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site. Permission granted in 2015 to publish it in the Spanish language and all accessible and on-line versions.
2005 – A series of photographs I was asked to take of Harris Hawk ‘Kerry’ in 2004 were used by Rhythm and Hues Studios as references for crafting the hawk that appeared in the 2005 film Elekra, starring Jennifer Garner.
2011 – article (with photographs) serialised over three issues of Renault Trafic Motorhome Register
2014 – photographs and introductory article published in the inaugural issue of on-line magazine IWACA (p 60-69)
2014 to date – short stories, flash fiction, limericks and other rhymes, and photographs published on this blog
Having said all that, I’m not driven by the quest for publication, money, or recognition. I just enjoy writing and sharing my stuff with anyone who wants to read it.
Max Matham is a self-employed freelance forensic accountant living in a quiet village in Buckinghamshire. Della Jont is a hard-nosed businesswoman who presses Max into working for her, investigating alleged financial irregularities at an orphanage in East Africa. Max soon finds that although the finances are okay, there are some disturbing things going on at the orphanage, and becomes involved in a set of intriguing events involving orphans, government agencies, witch-doctors, an old university chum and a multinational pharmaceutical company.
This is the first story involving Max Matham, but is unlikely to be the last!
