Ron McMillan

Paisley, United Kingdom


Author of three books, with more on the way.

The latest, Bangkok Cowboy, is a crime thriller set in Thailand that introduces two new central characters - Mason & Dixie, private eyes working the murky underworld of one of the most fascinating capitals in the world. The sequel to Bangkok Cowboy is in the works.

My previous crime thriller, set in South Korea, is Yin Yang Tattoo. Well received by the critics, it is available paperback and in print. It is published by Sandstone Press in the United Kingdom.

BETWEEN WEATHERS, Travels in 21st Century Shetland, is published by Sandstone Press. Nominated shortly after publication for the prestigious Saltire Society Awards, it continues to sell well, and is the inspiration behind a feature film, also called BETWEEN WEATHERS, that is currently in pre-production.

A writer and photographer based for most of the last thirty years in Asia, I worked from a Hongkong base for ten years between 1988 and 1998, visiting most parts of the region on multiple occasions, on photo assignments for magazines in the USA and Europe including Time, Newsweek, Businessweek, Fortune and L'Express.

I now spend a large part of the year in Thailand. More information and contact details are at my website,
