Mobi D'Ark was born in 1946 in Hampshire, England and grew up in post-war, economically depressed East London/Essex. He left school at the age of sixteen to become an accountant and had a 40-year career in the world of global finance.

During this time he lived and worked extensively abroad, primarily in South East Asia, West Africa, The Middle East, and North America. He concluded his career back where he started - in the City of London.

Taking early retirement in 2,000, Mobi turned his hand to his first love, creative writing, and during the past 14 years he has written a collection of six Thai-based novelettes, a children's novel, a crime novelette based in the Middle East and two full-length novels, both of which are largely based in Thail

I am not into detective or romantic genres where such couples may abound.

So I'm going to be cheeky and say that my favorite couple is Perry and Sunny from my own novel, "Madju-Raj: The Messenger of Death".

These two - an Englishman, and a Thai woman - live in a little village in England, and team up to solve a murder in a nearby village and save a Thai woman who stands accused of the crime.

Their adventures take them from England to Thailand, and back again, and there is no lack of romance along the way between these two unusual and diverse characters from different cultural backgrounds. They are the classic fictional couple. (IMHO....)

Mobi-Babble

Yes folks, once again we have been packing and unpacking – hopefully for the last time. While we were quite happy with our little home at the northern end of Oakham Town, the rent was quite high and in October last year it was increased. We could still afford it, just, but we were on a rolling month by month contract and I have always fretted about our security of ten
