Philip Spires

I am semi-retired, living in Spain. I spend most of my time nowadays gardening, cooking, reading, reviewing and writing. I have four books available, two African novels set in Kenya, Mission and A Fool´s Knot, a set of travels stories, Voyagers, and a rugby league book, 50 Of The Best, which I wrote with Martin Offiah. I review almost every book I read in an attempt to clarify what I think about it. I post the reviews on my blog.
