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.
A new book is currently in the pipeline.
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.
