Adrian Fleur

Writer

My last position was Assistant Editor for the most-read English-language news site and magazine in Northern Thailand.

However, my passions lie with my personal writing: fiction novels, research and poetry.

Market of Eden is my little blog all about the food, culture, hurdles and scruffy street dogs of Thailand.
