Meet the Author

I'm an Orthodox Christian Pastoral and Moral Theologian, with a Licentiate in Pastoral Theology and a Doctorate of Ministry in Pastoral Counselling. While, if asked, I'd say my main areas of interest are in Bio-Ethics and Pastoral Care in Psychiatry, my mind has a tendency to wander so, in addition to my research and writing in my main areas of interest, I've recently released a daily prayer book, which is available as an e-book, as well as in paperback. I'm currently working on an encyclopaedia of pre-schism Saints of the Orthodox Roman Patriarchate. It will be released in two parts; part one entitled "A Synaxarion of Orthodox Saints of the British Isles" is expected to be released at the end of 2013; the second part will cover the rest of the Saints of the Orthodox Roman Patriarchate.
