Under the pen name of Richard Tresillian he is the author of several novels including "The Bondmaster" and numerous guidebooks including "The Bradt Guide to Mauritius" and "The Bradt Guide to the Maldives." An honorary member of the Institute of Rail Transport (India) he was consultant for the National Geographic television special on Indian Railways.
