My writing has encompassed three books and a gamut of articles for both print and online. Details of my third book, to be published by Summersdale on April 7 2014, will be posted here shortly.
The books I have had published so far are….
Tuk Tuk to the Road
In the summer of 2007 Jo and I had a book about our tuk tuk marathon published by The Friday Project (an imprint of Harper Collins). Apparently people are still buying this and it in May 2011 it was top of the travel i-books chart. In September 2013 it was number four in Amazon’s travel bestsellers for a month. It’s also been spotted for sale in some rather odd places, like Beijing and Mozambique.
If you would like to order a copy then all you have to do is pop over to Amazon where you can pick it up for about the same price as a Kit Kat.
The Greenwood Guide to Canada
Back in 2002, when I was fresh out of University, the kind folk at Greenwood Guides packed me off to Canada to co-write their new guide to unusual places to stay there. A glorious six months ensued, high-tailing it from Novia Scotia to British Columbia and everywhere in between. I stayed in house-boats, lighthouses, buffalo farms and organic farmstays on tiny, near uninhabited islands. The resultant book was published in May 2003.
Again, this is still available from Amazon, for the cost of about one finger of Kit Kat.
Journalism: Print and Online
Publications I’ve written for include The Guardian, Wanderlust magazine, Motorcycle Monthly, Adventure Journal (USA), Verge magazine (Canada) and The Daily Mail. I’ve also contributed a chapter to Lonely Planet’s Flightless.
I specialise in writing about adventure travel and expeditions, but have also written articles about the environment and lifestyle.
Some of the articles I write are reproduced on this website, so please have a gander on the blog homepage.
And here’s a link to a piece I did for The Guardian a few years ago. The Guardian travel writing competition Runner Up 2010.
