Welcome. I’m a historian and author of Empire’s Crossroads: A History of the Caribbean from Columbus to the Present Day (2014).  I now have a new book – El Norte: The Epic and Forgotten Story of Hispanic North America – coming out in the US in February 2019 (pre-order on Amazon) and in the UK in August 2019 (also available for pre-order).

Click on the links at the top or side of the page (and then scroll down) to find out more about me and my work as a historian of the Caribbean and Latin America. Alternatively, you can have a look at my LinkedIn profile for a detailed CV.

I can also be found on Facebook and you’re more than welcome to follow me on Twitter or Instagram. Feel free to contact me using this form.

If you have a bit of time, peruse some of my book-related travel photos: there are some from my journey around the Caribbean, my travels in Mexico and the US borderlands, and a few holiday jaunts too. Thanks for stopping by!
