WHAT TO READ

These are the books currently on my bedside table. I'm either part way through them, about to start, or I'm reading them for the sixth time.

Art Crime And Its Prevention

It’s no secret that my next book, The Ruination of Art, is about art crime in Florence. Whilst Wikipedia is an amazing tool, there is nothing like delving into a real book to conduct research.

I ordered this through the Time Out Bookstore in Mt Eden, Auckland. Always support your local independent bookstore! They employ people, and make local communities more vibrant.

Wilding

Wilding

Nature fascinates me, whilst intensive farming doesn’t. This story about returning an English farm to nature is incredible, and demonstrates the power of nature, and how the natural world is designed to live in harmony, without mankind’s interference.

In part, this book is also research for a new Young Adult timeslip series I am writing for my daughters, which will be published at some stage. They are reading each chapter as I write it. If they like it, you’ll be able to read it too. So watch this space…

The Dinosaur Artist

A true tale of one Florida man's attempt to sell a dinosaur skeleton from Mongolia. Very Jurassic Park, and utterly fascinating.

Who knew the trade - legal or otherwise, in fossils was such a hot topic, and such a huge money earner for the big auction houses?!
