About


About
It's about time Alistair Forrest slowed down a tad. He was brought up in the Middle East, dashing to and from the UK for a spot of schooling. He's worked for several UK newspapers and edited travel, photographic and natural health magazines. He ran a PR company for a decade. He's lived in six countries all told, and visited many of the rest. Perhaps moving to Alderney in the Channel Islands with his wife Lynda has put an end to his nomadic lust. Who knows? But at least he now lives near a beach and quite a few other creative types.
