Malcolm broke into journalism in London’s Fleet Street and by the age of twenty-one was news editor for Britain’s prestigious Fleet Street News Agency.
When the BBC launched “Radio London” Boyes was hired as a reporter filing live and taped reports. One year later Lord Lew Grade signed Boyes to head the drama publicity department for his ATV Network.
After two years with ATV “The National Enquirer” brought Boyes to America. After working on both coasts for the paper, Boyes struck out alone. With the backing of a top literary agent, Boyes interviewed stars from John Wayne to Cher, Clint Eastwood and President Ford for magazine articles syndicated worldwide.
Next Boyes took the challenging job of west coast bureau chief and show business columnist for “The Star” before leaving to work as a special correspondent for Time Inc’s “People” magazine.
Within two years Boyes was also working for “Cable News Network” as an on air show business columnist, then as a movie reviewer, celebrity reporter and producer. Boyes next joined “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" as editorial director, co writing and formatting the show and appearing as an on air reporter for five seasons. Looking for a new challenge Boyes joined King World’s “Inside Edition” as deputy bureau chief, reporter and producer.
Boyes left “Inside Edition” to become senior west coast producer for “A Current Affair”, winning a “Genesis” award. Boyes went to “Extra” before joining Paramount TV’s “Hard Copy” as senior segment director. Boyes then joined Paramount’s “REAL TV" as a writer/producer.
Boyes has also been involved in his own projects hosting and co producing interactive CD ROMs and videos for Sigma Designs, Micropolis, Hewlett Packard and other top companies. Boyes has won three “Telly” awards and an “Aegis” award. Malcolm is currently working for Entertainment Tonight!

Manpot Tales of the Tropics
Manpot's Tales of the Tropics
by Malcolm Boyes
Drift on Caribbean tradewinds through white sand beaches and ramshackle bars where we meet a gang of colourful characters that thrive in those little latittudes. From Hollywood superstars Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando to local legends Big Red the Gangster, Johnnie One Nut, Bomba and Quito Rymer get carried away by stories too strange and funny to be fiction. You just can't make this stuff up.
REVIEW: Fantastic book from a great author who lives and spends a great deal of his time in the British Virgin Islands. He has first hand knowledge and has had many adventures that are told here in this book of tales. This book is an easy, fun, heart-warming read. My husband was laid up for 6 weeks after an operation on his foot and I brought him every book I could find to help him pass time and this was the only only book he read cover to cover and really enjoyed.
As vacationers to the British Virgin Islands for many years, my husband and I could associate with so many of these stories and have got to know many of the characters in them over the years so the book had extra special meaning for us, but anyone would certainly enjoy this light, fun and oh so interesting book of tales. Give it a read.....you won't be disappointed. We loved it!
