‘Up the Etna’ my new book in the pipeline. Travel stories by the Raven Brothers (March 2020)

A career in overland travel writing was launched when I drove a rusty Ford Sapphire across Siberia from the UK to Vladivostok in 2003. Since becoming an established writer with the publication of Driving the Trans-Siberian I have co-written Carnival Express, Living the Linger and Black Sea Circuit.

In addition to my writing projects, I have also documented off the beaten track destinations including China’s deep south, tribal India, Crimea, Colombian’s Chocó region and the Balkan peninsula, Chile, Bolivia and Buenos Aires. Up coming assignments include exploring Fes and Chefchaouen in Morocco.

My new book Up the Etna, co-written with my brother, is currently in the pipeline and it will be available for pre order in March 2020. Celebrating 15 years of travel and adventure, we have hand-picked a collection of our most intriguing, funny and challenging journeys from around the world. Our unique brand of humor, hilariously truthful observations and in-depth writing style will take the reader on a road trip across Russia, Siberia, Crimea, Syria, Georgia, Norway, USA, Sicily, and explore fascinating destinations from Germany, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, India, Spain and the jungles of Peru.

I have been noted by Lonely Planet for my talent to portray an “accurate view of what to expect”.

Also, I have co-written two screenplays Reach and the black comedy Eddy Bunk.
