Michael Joseph is a not-too-subtle pen name I use for my fiction work. I’ve lived, worked and traveled throughout Southeast Asia for more than twenty years. My home base is Bangkok.

I’ve been writing about travel, mostly around Southeast Asia, for more than ten years. That’s why I use a pen name. I’m not sure how my reputation as a honest reporter of travel opinion would be affected if people knew I also wrote fiction.

Something's. . . Different

Why, yes, thank you for noticing. The site does have a new look and feel. It's been well over the last update, so it was time for a refresh. But the changes are more than cosmetic. I've unleashed my geek and completely replaced the 'engine' that runs the site. Out went WordPress and in came a new framework called October.

W. Somerset Maugham
“I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place. Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings, but they have always a nostalgia for a home they know not. They are strangers in their birthplace, and the leafy lanes they have known from childhood or the populous streets in which they have played, remain but a place of passage. They may spend their whole lives aliens among their kindred and remain aloof among the only scenes they have ever known. Perhaps it is this sense of strangeness that sends men far and wide in the search for something permanent, to which they may attach themselves. Perhaps some deep-rooted atavism urges the wanderer back to lands which his ancestors left in the dim beginnings of history.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence
