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 – that is out now in the United States and in the UK. You can download the entire bibliography here, in Word or PDF formats.

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!
