Picture of James Hamilton Paterson

James Hamilton Paterson is an author of fiction and a poet. He is also an author of some splendid non-fiction on Egypt, the sea and deep sea exploration. Playing With Water is about his time spent on the island of Tiwarik in the Phillipines and his experiences there. James Hamilton Paterson is a one-off. A loner who does what he wants. But he does it brilliantly. Born on November 6, 1941 in London, Hamilton Paterson went to Windlesham House, Essex. He continued to go to Oxford. Following his work as a hospital orderly in St.Stephen's Hospital for a period of two years, Paterson got a job as a reporter with the New Statesman. He did this for five years, until 1974, when he landed the job of features editor for Nova magazine. From 1979 he has lived in the Philippines most of the year, somtimes spending time in Austria or Italy.
