Path Home ... Path Owen Jones

Owen Jones

Owen Jones, Amazon Best-Selling Author from Barry, Wales, has lived in several countries and travelled in many more. While studying Russian in the USSR in the '70's, he hobnobbed with spies on a regular basis; in Suriname, he got caught up in the 1982 coup; and while a company director, he joined the crew of four as the galley slave to sail from Barry to Gibraltar a home-made concrete yacht, which was almost rammed by a Russian oil tanker and an American aircraft carrier. “I am a Celt, and we are romantic”, he said when asked about his writing style, “and I firmly believe in reincarnation, Karma and Fate, so, sayings like 'Do unto another...', and 'What goes round comes around' are central to my life and reflected in my work. I write about what I see, or think I see, or dream... and, in the end it is all the same really”. He speaks seven languages and is learning Thai, since he lives in Thailand with his Thai wife of fifteen years. His first novel, Daddy's Hobby is from the seven-part series 'Behind The Smile: The Story of Lek, a Bar Girl in Pattaya', but his largest collection is 'The Megan Series', twenty-three novelettes on the psychic development of a teenage girl, the subtitle of which, 'A Spirit Guide, A Ghost Tiger and One Scary Mother!' sums them up nicely. He has written fifty novels and novelettes, including: Dead Centre; Andropov's Cuckoo; Fate Twister; The Disallowed (a philosophical comedy); Tiger Lily of Bangkok; and A Night in Annwn (Annwn being the ancient Welsh word for Heaven). Many have been translated into foreign languages and narrated into audio books. Owen Jones writes stories set in Wales, Spain and Thailand, where he now lives. He is a life-long Spiritualist, and this belief is interwoven, in a very realistic way, into many of his books and storylines. If you like a touch of the 'supernatural', try his books He sums his life up thus: “Born in the Land of Song, Living in the Land of Smiles”.

Village Food in Thailand

Takeaway Thai village food is usually provided by more mature ladies, who often have no other means of support. These people know their onions… the food is excellent, but it is meant for general consumption.

Our Garden Fish Pond

I am hoping that our new garden fish pond will be an area of cool relaxation, tranquillity and delight for us, which will be great for writing. I could do with that as I have not written much over the last few years due a lack of stability in my life and a disappointing drop in sales, which could be the result of a culture shift brought on by Covid 19.

My Covid-19 Vaccination Experience In Thailand

My wife has had Chinese Sinovacs, European AstraZeneca and American Pfizer injections, and that seems to me to give the best protection from Covid 19 you can get! I’ve had three Pfizers.

Losing Weight Quickly

Many people day-dream about losing weight quickly. I have been part of that hapless crowd. When I first moved to Thailand, seventeen years ago, I weighed a hefty 110 kilos.
After six months of good living and my girlfriend’s excellent cooking, i weighed in at 120 kilos. I was way overweight,
and I knew it, but I am big-built and just over six feet tall, so most non-medical people thought that I could get away with it.
I felt great, and since I have never been into serious exercise, I just let it slide.
Fifteen years passed and I remained at 120 kilos with no obvious ill effects. Then we moved to Spain. We had a kitchen
in our apartment there, and life and my weight continued as normal.
Then came the UK’s Brexit vote, and I judged that we ought to get my Thai wife inside Great Britain before they raised the drawbridge and lowered the portcullis.
We could not find anywhere to live for love nor money as we had no residential history, but a good friend let us have a room in his house.
We intended staying a month at most, but we were there for nearly two years.
Without a real place to cook of our own, the quality of our diet plummeted.
After 21 months, my doctor weighed me in at 134 kilos. My wife and I were shocked.
We returned to Thailand just before the aeroports were closed and nine months later I was back to 120 kg. Another six months
passed, but I just couldn’t get below 120 kg.
Anyway, I went for a check up yesterday, and when I hopped on the scales, I weighed 110 kg.
The scales in my house are twenty years old and giving false readings!

Covid-19 – Unforeseen Consequences

Covid 19 has been with us for more than two years now, and I have not heard any predictions over that period that have come true. It was a new phenomenon for most of us, and for all of us when it is seen as a global plague, so there is little wonder that no-one could foresee any outcomes accurately.

Thai Food in Our House

Thai mothers, who know how to cook old style, do not only cook for flavour, they also cook for the specific health needs of their families. The mother is a kind of shaman.

Facebook Idiocy

Then, one morning, I turned on my computer to discover that my Facebook account had been blocked or banned or shut down, whatever you want to call it, for ‘spamming’!
