Odds ‘n Sods:

I am now researching and writing the second and third installments of my Counter-Caliphate Chronicles novel series.

  • South Sudan
  • Kenya
  • Vanuatu
  • Niue
  • Tonga
  • Cook Islands
  • Nauru
  • The Philippines
  • Mozambique
  • Comoros
  • Mauritius
  • Maldives
  • Nicaragua
  • Honduras
  • Belize
  • Panama
  • St. Kitts & Nevis
  • Dominica
  • Grenada
  • Cape Verde
  • Mozambique
  • Madagascar
  • Namibia
  • Bermuda
  • Cayman Islands
  • Monaco
  • Isle of Man
  • Andorra
  • Finland
  • Switzerland
