Noel Scanlon is an Irish writer living in the wonderfully scenic West of Ireland.

Though he always wanted to write he started off with a career in international banking in the Middle East and India over a period of twenty years.

After graduating from MECAS, the British Foreign office Arabic language and culture institute in Shemlan, Lebanon, he lived in Dubai, Sharjah, Bahrain, Aden, Mukalla in the Hadhramut, the Oman and other parts of the Gulf where through his work he became acquainted with a number of the Gulf Sheikhs, in particular Sultan Qaboos of Muscat and Oman.

Though he was mostly in the Middle East he also lived in India in Bombay, Calcutta, and Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh.

All of these places provided him with the settings for his novel

The Gulf

Since I first made predictions about the fate of the Middle East, a number of Middle Eastern countries have been devastated, torn apart, and are now basically failed states.

My predictions about the super rich states of the gulf with their massive oil reserves haven't yet occurred but, as of now, they are being watched closely by radical Islamists.
