Stephen has written many internationally famous bestsellers including the Spider Shepherd and Jack Nightingale series.
Perhaps one of his most well-known books is Private Dancer based in Bangkok.
Currently, one of his bestsellers, The Chinaman, is being filmed (renamed as The Foreigner). It stars Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan. As part of the filming, this scene was recently shot in London and caused a big stir.
