Welcome. I’m the 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 – that is out now in the United States, the UK and Ireland, and Australia and New Zealand. El Norte was shortlisted for the Mark Lynton History Prize in January 2020.
¡Se puede leer El Norte en español!

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!
