My blogs are written on topics that interest me. Many of these topics relate directly or indirectly to subjects I have written about in my books, while others are stand alone and unrelated. My blogs are also there to provide some dialogue with readers and I welcome your feedback.

My two books are:

Human Origins, how diet, climate and landscape shaped us

HO Cover only bckext

(published in November 2016 by Earthspun Books)

The Rocks & Mountains of Cape Town


(published originally in 2004 and republished by Earthspun Books in 2016)

In 2016 I also republished my late father’s book:

Geology in the Field 

Dad's book cover

which is available from Amazon as a print-on-demand book or my website as a pdf.

I established Earthspun Books to publish beautiful books about our planet Earth that serve to enlighten, stimulate and inform their readers.
